Simon Teasdale is Assistant Vice Principal Social Innovation, and Professor of Public Policy and Organisations at Glasgow Caledonian University.

Simon’s research focuses on the intersection between public policies and organisational behaviour. He is particularly interested in how social innovation policies are enacted through discourse and financial incentives, and the complex ways in which practitioners seek to negotiate and informally amend such policies.

His research has been funded by bodies such as the Economic and Social Research Council, Medical Research Council, European Commission, OECD and by national governments. He has published in journals including Economy and Society, Journal of Social Policy, Organization, Policy and Politics, Public Administration, and Public Management Review.

He is Associate Editor of Journal of Social Entrepreneurship and sits on the editorial boards of Social Enterprise Journal and Nonprofit Policy Forum. Simon has been involved on the Organising Committee of ISIRC since 2009.
