Rebuilding the centre ground
About the project
We want to rebuild the centre ground of UK politics. Our project includes defining what centrism is and how much support it has today.
Strengthening the centre ground
We are identifying values that those in the centre ground share and what messages appeal to centrist voters.
We bring together centrist politicians as part of this project including discussing with them their views on centrism.
Polling the centre ground
We run yearly polls to understand how centrist the UK public is and more generally people’s political views.
To find out the state of the centre ground today we worked with Millbank Think Tank on a poll to understand which words people associate with their political views. The paper also proposes ways the political centre can increase its support.
