Research

Our research allows us to identify areas where younger and future generations are at most risk of intergenerational unfairness. Our research areas range from health and education to housing, employment, taxation, pensions, government debt, voting, population change and environmental degradation. We welcome outside contributors helping us to provide new evidence, propose workable policy solutions and mobilise personal and political action.
