IFS wins "Think Tank of the Year"

We are delighted to have won two Prospect awards: "Think Tank of the Year 2014" and "Economic and Financial Think Tank of the Year 2014". Judges recognised IFS for being "hugely prominent in the fiscal and economic debates". Full details on the awards are here.

The aim of the Think Tank Awards is to honour the achievements of the organisations that help to shape public and political thinking on policy questions. Entrants to the awards were scored according to six criteria: coherent selection of topics of importance; innovative and plausible policy prescription; rigour of analysis; influence on politics; influence on media and wider impact; convening power.
