The world is transforming with incredible speed. Changes in technology, demographics and climate are challenging how we organise and manage our economies and communities.

The ongoing supply chain impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, exacerbated in many parts of the world by the war in Ukraine, have produced economic conditions that bring these challenges into sharper focus. How do we reinvigorate global trade? How do we develop economies that give people better living standards and create fairer rewards? How do we build more robust public services and social security systems? At the same time, the innovation, creativity and agility that some governments showed in their response to the COVID-19 crisis points the way to a more fundamental reimagining of how governments can better serve their citizens in the future.      

This Future of Government series gathers fresh perspectives on four big strategic challenges that governments face:

  • Regenerating economies
  • Reshaping public services and revitalising local communities
  • Retaining and extending innovative ways of working
  • Repairing public finances
