Welcome to Ideas Wales. We are a think-tank for the centre left in Wales. Our aim is to generate new ideas to help the centre-left meet the policy challenges of the future. We are a Labour supporting think tank, but we are independent from it.
An ambition for Renewal
Ideas Wales is committed to the renewal of political ideas and policy options for Wales. Where achievements have been made we seek to build on them. Where there are continuing problems we seek to think afresh on how to solve them. Where there are new challenges we seek to develop long-term approaches to face up to them.
In so doing we will draw on our historical traditions in Wales and Britain; and we will draw on good ideas and practice from around the world. Above all we will seek to overcome the cynical attitude that politics must disappoint, and relate political ideas practically to the lived experiences of people throughout Wales. We will rule no particular approaches in or out.
