The Institute of Ideas's mission is to bring fresh ideas to the public arena on the key debates of our time. The IoI aims to be an agenda-setting organization prepared to think the unthinkable and encourage others to do likewise. The IoI is committed to forging a space where ideas can be contested without constraint, and where the clash of ideas is recognized as integral to the process of knowledge expansion.
