Inclusive growth is one of the most urgent challenge facing policy makers in the UK and in economies across the world. While there is not yet a shared definition of what this should or could mean, the Centre for Progressive Policy is at the forefront of this endeavour – shaping both the conceptual debate and innovative examples of best practice on the ground.
To achieve this, CPP believes a new approach is needed
- Broadening the notion of economic policy to integrate a range of social factors – including mental, physical and public health, education and skills – so often at the root of low skills, poor productivity and declining private sector investment;
- Harnessing the best of central and local government to shape the national economic environment and build on the assets and opportunities of place;
- Working in partnership with local, national and international leaders – across civil society, public and private sectors – to drive and sustain real world impact.
Our work is data-driven and provides fully developed, deliverable policy ideas that shape the debate and pave the way for system change. In this way we seek to make inclusive growth a reality.
How we work
To maximise the impact of our work on the ground, the Centre brings together a focus on
- High quality analysis to develop policy recommendations fully, identifying through robust quantitative and qualitative research key barriers to system change;
- Engagement and advocacy, co-designing research programmes with policymakers to develop pragmatic solutions and maximise the real world value of our work; and,
- Implementation, working with stakeholders – including national and local government, business and civil society – to navigate technical, political and institutional complexity to achieve outcomes.
