The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) is the UK’s pre-eminent progressive think tank. Founded in 1988, our purpose is to conduct and promote research into economic, social and political science and technology, the voluntary sector and social enterprise, public services and industry and commerce; and to educate the public in these subjects. We are an independent charitable organisation with our main offices in London. IPPR North, IPPR’s dedicated think tank for the North of England operates out of offices in Manchester and Newcastle, and IPPR Scotland, our dedicated think tank for Scotland, is based in Edinburgh.

The Media Policy Project (MPP) began in January 2011 as an initiative of the Department of Media and Communications at LSE. Founded by Dr. Damian Tambini, the goal of the MPP was to start conversations between policy makers, civil society actors, and media professionals about the latest media research, and to provide timely access for policymakers to relevant research, and to the range of views held by civil society. The project has published numerous blogs, policy briefs and topic guides, and run both public lectures and expert consultation workshops on a broad range of media policy issues, including copyright, algorithmic accountability, telecoms and media regulation.
