About Tony Blair Institute for Global Change:

Who we are: The Tony Blair Institute for Global Change

The Tony Blair Institute for Global Change is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to making globalisation work for the many, not the few.

We offer new thinking and new approaches to addressing some of the most intractable problems leaders today are wrestling with.

The Institute works to provide policy and strategy in support of a vision of globalisation designed to improve the well-being of the people, economically, politically, and socially. Our focus is on tackling the big challenges which hold such a vision of globalisation back:

  • Poor governance which stops the benefits of globalisation being shared because countries cannot build the institutional strength and resilience to transform their situation and deliver for their people
  • Extremism which stops the co-existence and cultural open-mindedness essential for social integration
  • Conflict which entrenches sectarianism and paralyses progress, particularly in the Middle East
  • Western politics which is in urgent need of a new agenda to provide radical but sensible answers to the new challenges presented by globalisation, technology, and the rise of a new false populism
