Making good society, the final report of the Commission of Inquiry into the Future of Civil Society, argues that civil society has been pushed to the margins in key areas including politics, finance and the media and that this must change. The report explores how civil society activity can help: grow a more civil economy; enable a rapid and just transition to a low carbon economy; democratise media ownership and content; and grow participatory and deliberative democracy.

The Commission hopes that the evidence and ideas provided in this report and the direction of travel it sets for a ‘good’ society will inspire individuals and organisations to act and invest in civil society activity.
