We are Jersey’s only independent think tank.

We believe that a healthy and thriving democracy results from civil society working in partnership with government with a common vision to create a better future together. Our purpose is to promote education for the benefit of all the people of Jersey on social, economic, environmental, public policy and public administration issues in the context of Jersey’s status as a microstate. We work collaboratively with many supporters and partners, including government, but retain editorial control over all of our work and publications to maintain our independence.

We create safe spaces and opportunities to share evidence, opinion and ideas.

We believe that a democracy works best when people are well-informed, civically engaged and have the opportunity to share their perspectives and concerns, particularly when these views may be uncomfortable or unpopular, as public policy must work for society as a whole. We bring people together from diverse backgrounds and experiences to connect with each other, engage in discussion and debate, share their knowledge, ideas and concerns around public policy issues to stimulate and facilitate more informed and collaborative action. We encourage people to ask themselves: What can I, as an individual and together with other people, do to improve ourselves, our community and find solutions for societal challenges?

We are supported and funded by individuals and organizations who share our values and are committed to the way we work. Our approach is guided by and reflects the following values and principles of being Curious, Objective, Practical, Evidence-Based, Collaborative, Committed, Solution-Seeking.

Who We Are

We have a small core team and work in collaboration with our supporters, collaborators and contributors as part of our Knowledge Partnership.
