The IFS was last night named Runner Up in Prospect Magazine's annual Think Tank of the Year Awards, which follows our victory in 2005.The Chairman of the judges, David Walker of the Audit Commission, described the IFS as: "A byword for impartial, authoritative commentary within a bounded sphere. Masterful in communications and dissemination, building bridges between academic and practical knowledge, and about to produce in Sir James Mirrlees review of UK taxation a major study of utmost political relevance."
Receiving the award, Robert Chote, Director of the IFS, said: "I would like to thank the judges, our staff, and our funders. I particular I would like to thank the Economic and Social Research Council for their support. Without their core funding our work on policy issues and in informing the public debate would simply not be possible".
