MIP has worked with the Centre for Social Justice since its inception to help them navigate the corridors of Westminster, as well as packaging and promoting their important messages to the British media.
The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) is an independent think tank, established by Iain Duncan Smith in 2004 to put social justice at the heart of British politics.
In June, the CSJ was awarded UK Social Policy Think Tank of the Year 2013 at Prospect magazine’s Think Tank Awards.
In 2007 the CSJ published its landmark report, Breakthrough Britain. This publication, which set out 190 evidence-based policy recommendations to tackle poverty in Britain, transformed the social policy and political landscape and was awarded Publication of the Year by Prospect Magazine in 2008.
MIP ensured that Breakthrough Britain and its findings received the traction it deserved among policymakers and the media and helped the think tank achieve its acclaimed position within the social justice debate in the UK.
As a result of our combined efforts, the findings and recommendations expressed within the report helped to set the backbone to much of the current Government’s social policy agenda and welfare reform programme.
Since Breakthrough Britain, MIP has continued to work with the CSJ to ensure it continues to play an influential role in the UK’s social policy debate.
