There is a diverse range of tobacco control
research being done at the London School of Hygiene
and Tropical Medicine from a variety of disciplinary perspectives
including public health,
epidemiology, political science, economics and history.
Current work includes investigations into the connections
between globalisation and the tobacco industry and the influence
of the tobacco industry on policy and science through analysis
of internal tobacco industry documents; analysis of the
impacts of tobacco industry privatisation; epidemiological
analysis of smoking patterns across countries in central
and eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union; work on
the impacts of and influences on tobacco control policies
in the UK and the European Union.
Additional work is examining the history of post-World War
II smoking policy in the United Kingdom.
