Organisation profile

Our multidisciplinary, international and award-winning research group examines how companies influence health and policy; and evaluates and provides evidence for policy change. Through our research we explore how companies seek to influence science and policy; map environmental, social and economic impacts across global supply chains; analyse corporate claims of interest in harm reduction; investigate bribery and corruption in the tobacco industry; and help to build capacity in the global tobacco control community. We work closely with national and international NGOs, policy makers and other organisations such as the World Health Organization.

TCRG created and runs TobaccoTactics, a knowledge exchange platform. TobaccoTactics is a unique resource, providing rigorous academic research and monitoring data on the tobacco industry and its allies. The site attracts thousands of users from across the world including researchers, policy makers, journalists and advocates.

We are part of STOP, a global tobacco industry watchdog.
