Civitas: Institute for the Study of Civil Society is a cross-party think tank which strives to benefit public debate through independent research, reasoned argument, lucid explanation and open discussion. Founded in 2000 by Dr David G. Green – formerly Director of Health and Welfare at the Institute of Economic Affairs – Civitas has always stood apart from party politics and transitory intellectual fashions.
Its output has covered issues ranging from education and health to crime and freedom of speech. In recent years strong focuses of work have been on housing and industrial policy. Ongoing projects currently include Islam and the West, led by Ed Husain, and the Forum on Integration, Democracy and Extremism, led by Emma Webb.
Uniquely among think tanks, Civitas has always played an active, practical part in rebuilding civil society by running schools on Saturdays and after-school hours so that children who are falling behind at school can achieve their full potential. Civitas has also adapted the Core Knowledge curriculum for the UK, published a series of books based on it, and has supported many primary schools that have adopted the curriculum as their own.Visit Website
