Part of our mission at Centre is to inform debate and to produce new ideas. This is where we publish papers to focus on different areas of policy and to explore the different points of view on a certain topic. We also produce briefing papers to offer both the background to a subject and a policy proposal.
Our vision: Our vision to move the UK forwards (briefing paper):
This is a vision for a country that combines a strong welfare state with a free market economy. It is a system that we know works because its been tried and tested in the Nordic countries. This has meant simplifying systems such as social security, how many layers of government we have and our overly complex tax system. We also learnt from them in areas where individual countries have become world leaders. In creating a free market economy that works we have looked to countries such as Sweden and reforming our education system has been based off Finland which has one of the best education systems in the world.
