The Centre for Progressive Capitalism is hosted by Policy Network, a leading international thinktank promoting the best progressive thinking on major social and economic challenges.

Policy Network sets out to rigorously analyse the structural changes facing the advanced democracies, and to facilitate ideas and policy solutions to complex governance challenges. We aim to form intellectual consensus behind these ideas and facilitate dynamic platforms for international exchange, ideas dissemination and political reflection.

This work is driven by an international network of politicians, policymakers, business leaders, public service professionals and academic researchers. The Progressive Governance Network, for which Policy Network acts as the secretariat, is at the core of our activity and identity. Dedicated to promoting international dialogue between progressive parties and actors, we have held conferences and leaders summits in countries including: Norway, UK, Chile, US, South Africa, Germany, Sweden, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands and Denmark.


“Policy Network is at the cutting edge of debate on future options for policy making, in particular in thinking about what should be done at European level.”

Herman Van Rompuy, former president of the European council


“In Policy Network I have always found a source of inspiration that never dries out. Time and time again I have been engaged  by new ideas, new insights, and straight talk, and straight talk is important.”

Helle Thorning-Schmidt, former prime minister of Denmark


“London-based thinktank Policy Network cannot be appreciated enough for its important work of sharing ideas and exchanging government experiences all across Europe.”

Lodewijk Asscher, deputy prime minister of the Netherlands and minister of social affairs and employment


“Like so few others, Policy Network is confronting the big challenges of our times: how to come to terms with globalisation and the complex interplay between domestic and international politics.”

Pascal Lamy, former director-general of the WTO and honorary president of Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute
