Catalyst was set up in 1998 to promote new, practical policies directed to the redistribution of power wealth and opportunity.
Catalyst is not aligned to any political party, but we are an organisation of the left, of democratic socialists, with a clear statement of purpose and an Editorial Board comprising individuals who have all made substantial contributions in the fields of politics, economic and social policy. We intend to use our network of Board members and contacts to identify and publicise radical proposals which conform to our values, as stated in our aims.
We believe in the importance of argument and the victory of ideas and we welcome the support moral, intellectual and financial of anyone who shares our beliefs.
'A plucky new think tank is being set up by awkward socialists. The name of this enticingly radical forum is Catalyst.' Daily Telegraph
