Organiser

Bright Blue

Bright Blue is an independent think tank and pressure group for liberal conservatism. It was first formed in 2010 by Ryan Shorthouse and a group of policymakers and campaigners who were passionate about applying liberal conservative ideas and insights to tackle the major economic and social problems of the modern day.

Today, we are a respected and leading think tank - as well as a membership organisation - which delivers an extensive programme of research, publications and events. Our thinking and ideas have had significant influence on public debate and government policy.
