The Social Jungle is for those curious about political and social issues.
For those who think 24 hr breaking news headlines just don’t cut it.
For those who want to take a closer look at society.
We are a young platform which was set up by graduates and students of the LSE & Warwick. Our content brings together insights from social sciences along with real life experiences and stories. We want to connect the academic to the real world.
We also use behavioural insights and digital marketing skills to help contributors create informative, thought provoking and entertaining content on social issues.
Whether you enjoy writing about social issues, or if you're applying for jobs and want to show off your knowledge on a subject or even if you want to learn about social science research, The Social Jungle can help.
From explainer articles, interviews and opinion pieces to analysis and videos you can find it here at The Social Jungle.
