David Goodhart

David Goodhart
David Goodhart is the director of Demos, the think-tank focused on power and politics. Its unique approach challenges the traditional, 'ivory tower' model of policymaking by giving a voice to people and communities. It works together with the groups and individuals who are the focus of its research, including them in citizens’ juries, deliberative workshops, focus groups and ethnographic research. Through its high quality and socially responsible research, Demos has established itself as the leading independent think tank in British politics. Its work is driven by the goal of a society populated by free, capable, secure and powerful citizens.

David is also the founder and former editor of Prospect magazine, which he set up in 1995. David has grown Prospect into Britain's leading current affairs monthly and he remains the magazine's editor-at-large.

David is a prominent figure in public debate in the UK. He is a well-known broadcaster, author, commentator and journalist who regularly contributes to The Guardian, The Independent, The Times and Financial Times. Before Prospect, David was a correspondent for the Financial Times for 12 years - including a stint in Germany during the unification period. He is currently working on a book, The British Dream, about postwar multiculturalism, national identity and immigration. He has four children and lives in North London.

David Goodhart contributed to The Great Debate: Whatever Happened to Equality? in November 2012.


Progressive Nationalism by David Goodhart
Progressive Nationalism by David Goodhart

Progressive Nationalism: Citizenship and the Left argues that new citizens need to more visibly ‘earn’ their citizenship through tests and probationary periods. It also argues that there needs to be a clearer link between citizenship and welfare entitlement for all citizens if the solidarities underpinning the welfare state are to be preserved.
