The Institute for Government is the UK's leading independent charity and think tank promoting more effective government. We work with political parties and senior civil servants, providing fresh thinking through research, events and leadership development. We have cross-party governance and are funded by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation.
A Programme for Effective Government analyses the common problems and dilemmas that face, and will face, governments of all parties if they are elected. We outline the practical steps the parties must take to run a more effective government and honour their manifesto commitments.
