Clubs & Societies Directory
The Wilberforce Society is the first student-run political think tank to have been established in the UK. We operate like any other such organisation but have no political affiliation, representing the wide range of views of students at the University of Cambridge. We work to produce practical yet innovative proposals, unrestricted by dogmatic thinking.
Our work is carried out in two forms. Our first type of work is on commissions, in the past from MPs and Lords. For such assignments, committees are formed which work corporately over a period of weeks or months to produce substantial pieces of work.
Our second type of work is the production of proposals by individuals and small groups. These proposals are then discussed at open meetings to which a guest expert is invited. The guest helps establish the background of the policy area and assists us in assessing the proposals presented.
TWS is a both a great place to air ideas and to receive an education in public policy. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
