From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Perri 6 is a noted British social scientist. He changed his name from David Ashworth to Perri 6 in 1983, stating that he was amused by the notion of "6, P" appearing in academic papers.[1]

6 worked for Demos, a centre-left think tank with close ties to New Labour in the 1990s. He is currently Professor of Social Policy at Nottingham Trent University's School of Social Sciences.[2] Much of 6's recent research is based on the cultural theory of risk, which he refers to as "neo-Durkheimian institutional theory".[2]
