Working to make government more effective

Policy making

We look at how government makes policy and develop ways to do it more effectively.

We analyse every stage of the policy making process – from how policies are conceived and developed to how they are delivered and evaluated. We draw on a range of case studies – from successes like the offshore wind and same-sex marriage to areas where governments have repeatedly struggled, like obesity and asylum policy.

Our work looks at how civil servants provide advice and use evidence, the skills and expertise of policy teams, the way ministers and officials interact, and the role of citizens and public engagement.

Better policy making

How government – both ministers and officials – could change to make policy better.
