Welcome to OxPolicy: The Oxford Student Think Tank. Established in April 2013, we’re part of Oxford Hub. We seek to investigate and subsequently improve the quality of debate about important issues in our society. We take a non-aligned stance, meaning we aim to have no systemic bias in terms of the issues we review and the policies we recommend. Although the think tank is run by Oxford students, we welcome involvement from everyone both inside the local community and beyond. Find out more…
