Background Information

The CSJ is an independent think-tank founded by Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith (C) to "put social justice at the heart of British politics and to build an alliance of poverty fighting organisations in order to see a reversal of social breakdown in the UK." To achieve this, it highlights and champions the work of various organisations committed to eliminating poverty and conducts policy research, taking broad and "highly variable views (Duncan Smith to Frank Field, David Blunkett to Charles Kennedy) while maintaining a defined centre-right stance" in its recommendations (source:; Guardian)
