The IPPR is currently in its fifth year of existence. The institute can proudly look back on a strong track record of research excellence in public policy, whilst continually living up to its credo that development is best promoted through free and critical debate, informed by quality research. Our key indicators, such as publications produced/distributed, the website traffic, newspaper citations, as well as the number of radio and television appearances, demonstrate that the IPPR is here to stay, committed to fulfilling its role of providing substantial research on public policy.
