LAUNCHING NEXT MONDAY. 11 May 2015. Policy Series

Fairness, Opportunity and Security
A Policy Series to fill the policy vacuum.
Edited by Michael Keating and John Menadue

On May 11 in this blog- Pearls and Irritations– we will begin a series of articles on important policy issues. There will be over forty articles on sixteen policy areas from over thirty contributors. The series will run for four to five weeks.
