Our publications showcase the IfG’s sector-leading research, giving readers an impartial and evidence-based analysis of what makes good government – and what could be improved.  

Insight papers offer a concise run-down of key issues, including our snap analysis of current events such as changes of government or emerging external challenges.

Analysis papers and longer reports dig deeper, drawing on long-running research projects, data analysis and interviews with experts and other key figures to answer the big questions facing government today, such as how to reform the civil service, the role of the tax system or the use of evidence in policy making.  

Our three data-driven reports – Whitehall Monitor, Parliamentary Monitor and Performance Tracker – provide an unrivalled stocktake of the civil service, parliament and public services respectively.
