Overview

In support of its mission to promote prosperity, the Legatum Institute's research programmes seek to understand what drives and restrains national success and individual flourishing.


Centre for Metrics

The Legatum Institute is building a world-class Centre for Metrics. The Centre will ensure our understanding of the challenges this generation faces are informed, accurately diagnosed and analytically robust. The solutions we propose are rooted in accurate data, and drive the most effective interventions. The Centre's research include's the Legatum Prosperity Index, a unique global assessment of national prosperity based on economic and social wellbeing.

Legatum Institute Special Commission on Trade

The Special Trade Commission (STC) was created in the wake of the British vote to leave the European Union. It aims to present a roadmap for the many trade negotiations which the UK will need to undertake. The Commission is chaired by Shanker Singham.

Economics of Prosperity

Economics of Prosperity focuses on the key economic drivers of future prosperity and long-term GDP growth. The programme is led by Shanker Singham, Director of Economic Policy and Prosperity Studies.




Cultural Transformation

Our Cultural Transformation Programme is committed to identifying the dynamics that weaken nations, and those that strengthen them. We do this through “Chatham House” dinners and events where sector experts share the challenges their industry is facing and what they believe needs to be done to build and restore a healthy culture to our top institutions and industries.

Centre for Character & Values

The Centre for Character & Values runs a series of initiatives that promote the importance of certain values in driving good social outcomes. Cristina Odone is founding director of the Centre.

Brexit 300x300

Brexit

Following the EU referendum result, Britain faces an unfrozen moment in which its destiny is unwritten. The decisions made by government over the coming months and years will have a huge impact (more so than usual) on the nation’s future prosperity. Our Economics of Prosperity programme and in particular our Special Trade Commission, building on our post Referendum analysis: 48:52 Healing a Divided Nation and The Road to Brexit, seek to capture the moment by providing the UK Government with genuine expertise and experience.

Centre for Entrepreneurs

The Centre for Entrepreneurs promotes the role of entrepreneurs in creating economic growth and social wellbeing. It is home to national enterprise campaign, StartUp Britain.
