What makes an expert?

A global network of 1,500+ academics, former policymakers, regulators and industry leaders distil data from multiple verified sources. This means you can quickly identify what is important and understand the broader significance. 

The reality of events are reported without restriction, as contributors are anonymous. Then briefings are reviewed to by Oxford Analytica’s team of regional and sectoral specialists to expose bias, provide rigour, challenge arguments and allow for new viewpoints. The end result – a single source of trusted, evidence-based analysis.
