What We Do
As the only cross-party think tank in Scotland we are the place to influence public policy. Fundraising through our activities and projects rather than receiving funding from political organisations allows us to keep our independence and integrity.
The Centre is engaged in developing public policy in a number of ways. We explore different aspects of policy, comment on these and suggest options for change and development. We do so through research, publications and discussion meetings of various kinds.
We create, encourage the development of, support and work with organisations with which we have shared views, sympathies and objectives. We promote discussion of options for change and development in various settings, including open events, supporters meetings, and ‘dialogue dinners’.
We use our social media channels to encourage such discussions, and we alert supporters to all these activities through regular electronic newsletters.
