Demos - People, Politics, Power

Demos is Britain’s leading cross-party think-tank. We produce original research, publish innovative thinkers and host thought-provoking events. We have spent over 20 years at the centre of the policy debate, with an overarching mission to bring politics closer to people.

Demos has always been interested in power: how it works, and how to distribute it more equally throughout society. We believe in trusting people with decisions about their own lives and solving problems from the bottom-up.

We pride ourselves on working together with the people who are the focus of our research. Alongside quantitative research, Demos pioneers new forms of deliberative work, from citizens’ juries and ethnography to ground breaking social media analysis.

This Spring, Demos is launching our first ever series of masterclasses for campaigners, policy makers, political professionals and interested citizens. For five days, we’re sharing the insights and expertise of our amazing range of staff and Trustees. It’s a rare opportunity to learn from former government advisers like speechwriter to Tony Blair and Times columnist, Philip Collins, and former policy chief to the Deputy Prime Minister, Polly Mackenzie. You can learn about handling the press, influencing the government and opposition, and how to prepare for being fact-checked. Book your place here: https://www.demos.co.uk/spring-masterclasses/
