CPD in the media

Our ideas are often covered in the media. Our experts provide regular commentary and analysis to inform policy debates. For past media see our CPD in the news section.

Media resources

CPD publishes short commentary and in-depth research by policy experts on a mix of topical and timeless issues. Our diverse stable of contributors includes prominent academics, politicians, current and former public servants, and independent policy analysts. We encourage our fellows and authors to look beyond the daily news cycle and dry, technical policy debates – to not only analyse the problems with current policies but propose viable alternatives. CPD publications are therefore the perfect “heads-up” for the policy debates of the future.
