GovernUp was set up in 2014 to bring together senior politicians of all parties, former civil servants, Whitehall advisers and business leaders in a new project.

Our mission is to analyse the current problems, challenge the terms of debate, and consider the far-reaching reforms needed in Whitehall and beyond to enable more effective and efficient government, with better economic and social outcomes for the British public.

We launched interim papers for each of our projects at a conference in February 2015.  We are now planning the next iteration of our project.  More news will follow in the New Year.

We are working to:

Produce a rigorous body of evidence to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the current system of government;

Generate radical but workable solutions to the long-term challenges that require reforms; 

Shape public debate and build a new cross-party consensus on reform, based on the conclusions of our research.
