Demos aims to create an open resource of knowledge and learning that operates beyond traditional parties, identities, and disciplines by promoting education for the public benefit in issues of politics, economics, the environment, and public policy as well as promoting, for the public benefit, research in any of the aforementioned fields of education and publishing the useful results of such research. Demos knowledge is organized around five themes: democracy, learning, enterprise, quality of life, and global change. Demos connects researchers, thinkers and practitioners to an international network of people changing politics.
