OCSI Chairman receives CBE

OCSI Chairman and co-founder Professor Michael Noble has received the CBE in the 2008 New Year’s Honours List for services to research on poverty and deprivation.

Michael runs the Social Disadvantage Research Centre (SDRC) and the Centre for the Analysis of South African Social Policy (CASASP) at the University of Oxford. SDRC has just completed the new national indices of deprivation for England (ID 2007) for central government. CASASP works with the South African government to develop high quality evidence-based social policy research to assist in the eradication of poverty and the development of citizenship.
