Welcome to the King’s Think Tank, the largest student-led policy institute in Europe.
Our institution was created in the wake of the student protests in 2010, as a means to empower change through student activism without resorting to civil disorder.
The King’s Think Tank aims to provide a platform for students to engage with the world of policy. It is an exceptional opportunity for students to seek out innovative solutions to complex issues.
Through our seven policy centres, our committee strives to address the pressing challenges of today’s society through organising policy workshops, panel discussions, and lobbying trips. Critical analyses are published in our online blog and formal policy papers are published in our annual policy-recommendation journal, The Spectrum.
In the decade since our launch, we have grown into a vibrant and diverse community of writers, activists, and leaders. In the coming academic year, we will be building on the foundation from previous years to grow our impact within the student-body at King’s and also the wider community.
If you have a vision and want to make a difference, there has never been a better time to get involved with King’s Think Tank.
