The Bridges Project: Different thinking for a different politics?

A new political landscape needs new kinds of conversations that can help us think differently about politics and policy. Our Bridges Project does exactly that.

Watch our new film to see how using different ‘lenses’ can shed light on crucial policy issues and shape new solutions to tackle deep political uncertainty.

 

 

The Bridges Project, a collaboration between Counterpoint and the Open Society European Policy Institute, explores the dynamics of human choice, collective thinking and sentiment, and political behaviour by bringing together ground-breaking researchers and high-level policy-makers to work through some of the most complex policy dilemmas facing open societies in Europe.
