Power with purpose: Final report of the Commission on the Centre of Government

Published by Institute for Government


The Institute for Government’s Commission on the Centre of Government looked at why No.10, the Cabinet Office and HM Treasury do not always work as well as they should and what could be done to radically improve the centre of UK government. This report is the product of a year-long research process involving evidence from a wide range of practitioners and experts, from former prime ministers to leading scientists, from senior civil servants in the UK and overseas to leaders in local government, the private sector and charities.

Dr Karin von Hippel was one of 16 commissioners providing advice and insights for the report.
