Policy Exchange is an independent, non-partisan educational charity. We work with academics and policy makers from across the political spectrum. We are particularly interested in free market and localist solutions to public policy questions. Policy Exchange is research-led and evidence-based. We put more effort than other think tanks into developing properly grounded research and detailed, costed proposals. We propose policies that politicians can actually implement and we think strategically about the next steps to take – rather than proposing visionary schemes with no chance of being adopted. For example, our work on credible energy policy looks in detail at how to deliver reform in a cost-effective way.
