Policy Exchange in the 2015 manifestos
Policy Exchange was delighted over the course of this week to see so many of our policy recommendations being adopted by the main three parties in their election manifestos. By our count policies from 19 of our reports are being taken forward.
Clearing the Fog of Law
Clearing the Fog of Law shows that misguided human rights laws mean British troops operating in the heat of battle are now being held to the same standard as police officers patrolling the streets on a Saturday night in the West End. The report calls for British forces to operate under the rules of the Geneva Conventions, rather than the ECHR, in future conflicts.
Budget 2015: Policy Exchange analysis
Policy Exchange responds to announcements in Budget 2015 in the areas of government spending, capital ownership, housing and energy policy.
A Rising Tide
Free Schools are raising standards for other pupils across the local community, especially in some of the poorest performing schools, as well for the pupils who attend them. A Rising Tide sets out for the first time detailed analysis on the performance of local schools where a Free School has opened.
Capital City Foundation
The Capital City Foundation is a new policy unit devoted to the continued prosperity and progress of London. It aims to be London’s most influential think tank, taking a long-term look at how to improve the lives of current and future Londoners to protect its standing as the greatest city on earth.
