Agora is the UK’s open forum for foreign policy. As such we are a British foreign policy think tank but, unlike traditional think tanks, we use an open-source approach in our work. Our founding narrative outlines our beliefs as an organisation.
Our think tank launched in London in November 2017, and we opened our first regional group in Oxford in 2020.
Agora’s leadership team and membership come from a diverse range of professional, academic, and personal backgrounds. What brings us together is a desire to make a meaningful contribution to discussions of international affairs.
We are part of the Open Think Tank Network. Our partners are Polis180 in Germany, Argo in France, Foraus in Switzerland, and Ponto in Austria. This exciting network is ever expanding and there are already plans for grassroots think tanks in Belgium, Dublin, and elsewhere.
