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.

Roundtable Discussions

Our moderated roundtable discussions are conducted under The Chatham House Rule. Each roundtable discussion is limited to roughly 20-25 participants who are invited to participate based on their interest and on their specific experience and expertise. Our aim is to ensure that a diverse range of perspectives are explored for each topic under discussion.


We undertake research independently and with collaborative partners and our network of research fellows. We also work with educational institutions to provide guidance and mentorship to degree-level students who pursue public policy research as part of their academic requirements.

Thought Pieces

We share thought pieces, some that are published in the monthly “Think Tank” feature in Jersey’s Bailiwick Express Connect magazine to bring attention to various public policy issues and invite readers to reflect and explore how we, as humans, think and work, both individually and collectively.
