Its premise is that Britain’s prosperity and stability depend on democratic accountability: of government to parliament and parliament to the people. It also depends on getting the detail as well as the broad framework of policy right. Politeia works with leading authorities from both Britain and abroad, pioneers from the legal profession, academic life, the economy, business and politics. With them, Politeia publishes up to date research and analyses, and makes proposals on which successful government policy can be based.
