British Future is an independent, non-partisan think tank and registered charity engaging people’s hopes and fears about integration and immigration, opportunity and identity. Our Theory of Change recognises that securing political consent for policy change on such issues requires public support – and that it is possible to build this support with the right approach. Through projects like the National Conversation on Immigration – the biggest-ever public consultation on immigration – we have built a comprehensive understanding of public attitudes on these issues.
We project our findings publicly to inform national debate, contributing to discussions on issues such as citizenship, EU migration, integration, refugee protection, the status of EU nationals in the UK after Brexit, combating racism and xenophobia, international student migration and national identities. British Future engages people’s legitimate concerns and offers constructive solutions in response. We develop arguments and messages that resonate with the public, particularly what we call the ‘Anxious Middle’ – the majority of the British public who are neither wholly pro- nor anti- immigration. We believe we can build a broad consensus among the public and opinion-formers for reforms to immigration and integration policy that work for all of us.
Our long-term aim is a country where we are no longer ‘Them and Us’ but rather a confident and welcoming Britain, inclusive and fair to all.Visit Website
