Modernising with Purpose: A manifesto for a digital Britain
This report outlines a policy agenda structures around the three strands of 'modernising', delineating' and 'recognising', and argues that these priorities can provide new purpose to the way in which Britain modernises its public institutions and economy.

Professor William Dutton, Director, Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford
