We carry out research into the extent and impact of deregulation. We also document the growing enforcement gap, and the decline in enforcement activity over the last decade.
Working with a variety of partners, we conduct regular polling to explore attitudes towards regulation – with both Leave and Remain voters, swing voters in the so-called ‘Red Wall’, and traditional Conservative voters in the ‘Blue Wall’.
Additionally, we carry out strategic communications research exploring how people perceive the need for regulation, and how to communicate a way that activates support for protections. Our aim is to build a deeper understanding of the values and concerns of these voters, which can inform our work and our wider network.
