The IPPR Commission on Economic Justice was founded in the belief that it was insufficient simply to argue that economic change was necessary. The country needed to see how it could be achieved.

The Commission brought together leading figures from across the UK, with representation from Scotland, and across society – from business and trade unions, civil society organisations and academia. The members of the Commission came from all walks of life and different political viewpoints. They voted on different sides of the EU referendum, and the Commission has been independent of all political parties.
