Facilitating Informed Public Debate
We search for solutions to economic and social problems unconstrained by the short-term priorities of political parties or conventional wisdom. And we provide timely comment on the pressing issues of the day from independent in-house researchers and a network of outside experts and academics from across the spectrum of opinion.
Improving the Stock of Public Knowledge
Civitas never takes a corporate view on any of the issues tackled during the course of this work. Our online reports are widely sought after and in 2015 reports were downloaded on over two million occasions. We ensure that there is strong evidence for all our conclusions and present the evidence in a balanced and objective way.
