My research on national identity in Wales formed part of the evidence drawn on by Margaret Wetherell in a briefing given to UK Prime Minister Tony Blair for his December 2006 speech on multiculturalism and extremism (see http://csp.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/28/3/299). This research also formed part of a submission to the UK Commission on Integration and Cohesion.

I have also collaborated in past research on crowd behaviour which has had a major practical impact on public order policing in the UK and in other European countries (e.g., Stott et al., 2007; 2008). Several outputs from this research were cited in a report to the UK Cabinet Office as part of the 'Understanding Crowd Behaviour' research report series (see http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/media/228115/supportingevidence1.pdf). The research has also influenced recommended 'best practice' for policing crowds and protests in the UK (see http://www.hmic.gov.uk/media/adapting-to-protest-nurturing-the-british-model-of-policing-20091125.pdf).
