A new future–facing public policy forum, independent of government and unaligned with any political party. Working with our partners, including colleagues at Queen’s University Belfast and Ulster University, Pivotal’s focus is on evidence–based ideas and policies to improve our society, economy and public services.
Pivotal’s Director Ann Watt talks about how Pivotal aims to contribute to policy making in Northern Ireland.
We inform public debate by producing research and analysis on the big issues facing our society now and in the future.
We enable people to engage in debate by helping everyone understand how our systems of government work and how public policy is developed and decided.
We bring together people from different backgrounds and sectors to listen to each other’s perspectives and insights, generate fresh ideas and discuss solutions.
