Rebecca is the Fellow, State & Society and Judicial Power Project; Convenor of Research Group on Political Thought; and Editor of the weekly Policy Exchange Agenda. She is part of ConservativeHome’s editorial team, where she writes a fortnightly column, and has written for various other mostly online publications, including Prospect Magazine, The Spectator, the Daily Telegraph, and Newsweek Europe. She studied at Magdalene College, Cambridge, and Birkbeck, University of London, and has worked for various political research organisations, and as a parliamentary researcher. Having previously worked in the arts, she founded and directed the Caritas Ensemble — a professional chamber ensemble, which raises funds and awareness for charitable causes. In the 2015 general election, she was a parliamentary candidate for City of Durham, where she gained the sixth biggest increase in the Conservative vote, nationally. Her research interests lie in the intersection between policy, practical politics, and political theory, with a particular focus on the role of the state, and its obligations to society.
