As part of our better policy making theme we are looking at new approaches to policy making. In our report, Making Policy Better: Improving Whitehall's Core Business, we recommend:

1. more emphasis on policy design

2. opening out the policy process

3. use of new techniques to improve policy making.

Over the coming months, we will be putting on a series of events aimed at exploring new aspects of policy making, bringing together leading thinkers and policy makers at all levels.
