‘Asset Ownership’ to ‘Zeitgeist’: an A-Z directory of ResPublica’s ideas and guiding principles

Publication Details

This week marked the two year anniversary of ResPublica.  Since our launch in November 2009 by David Cameron, ResPublica has achieved demonstrable success and impact on the policy landscape in a number of ways.  Our reports have received widespread acclaim from policy-makers and practitioners, the media, and politicians from both sides of the political spectrum.  ResPublica events, from private roundtables to party conference fringes, are highly regarded discussion platforms, covering a range of different topics. Both our personal membership packages and the ResPublica Business Network continue to be important forums for thought leadership and knowledge exchange.

ResPublica has also seen a number of structural changes which will serve to support the organisation’s founding principles, and ensure the quality of our work is maintained.  The ResPublica Trust was established in July 2011 as a not-for-profit vehicle which oversees all of ResPublica’s domestic work.  Governed by a Board of Trustees, the Trust has set out three core workstream which encompass ResPublica’s founding objectives to provide insight into new ways to re-moralise the market, re-localise the economy and re-capitalise the poor.  These core workstreams will frame all of ResPublica’s activities in 2012.

In celebration of our journey over the last two years, ResPublica today publishes an A to Z, which outlines the organisation’s successes and guiding principles, as well as forthcoming priorities and areas of interest in the coming months.

From ‘Asset Ownership’ to ‘High Streets’, ‘Open Public Services’ to ‘Jobs and Growth’, the publication covers a range of key policy topics, intellectual premises and insights into new ways of thinking in government, business and wider civil society.
