Our work encourages civic engagement from all people who live, work and play in Jersey to challenge themselves, listen to each other’s voices and create a better future together. We do this by creating safe spaces and opportunities for these conversations to take place.

We also publish research notes and thought pieces to bring facts to light, provoke questions and self-reflection to encourage and motivate engagement and catalyze action. All research and publications reflect the findings and opinions of the respective authors as the Jersey Policy Forum does not have a corporate view.

Our work programme includes the hosting and facilitation of roundtable discussions conducted under The Chatham House Rule, the production of briefing packs to collate and present relevant evidence and information, identifying and hosting appropriate experts to bring external knowledge and expertise to inform discussion, and the design and running of independently facilitated events to encourage candid, constructive and respectful debate and discourse on issues of importance to civil society.

In addition to monthly thought pieces, recent publications of our work include:
