We are an independent, non-party think tank set up in 2014 by Nick Herbert MP to promote more efficient government and good citizenship.  We are a registered charity no. 1154924.

Our formal aims are:

  1. The promotion of efficient government.
  2. The advancement of education to inform and contribute to overall public knowledge on issues of government, public administration and public service delivery.
  3. The promotion of civic responsibility and good citizenship for the public benefit.

Our first project, GovernUp, was set up in 2014 to promote more effective and efficient government, with better economic and social outcomes for the British public.

We have since broadened our research areas with new projects covering international development, global LGBT rights and citizenship, housing and planning, trade policy, economic policy, and justice and security issues.
