Impartial, free and easy to understand analysis of the events shaping our lives.

Our Story

I founded Polis Analysis for one simple reason: to help individuals navigate the political world. The impartial, fact-based and accessible analysis delivered by our global team offers an alternative to the increasingly polarising and partisan perspectives offered by traditional media. Fake news is spreading at an alarming rate, and the threat misinformation poses to our democracies is clear. Add in the chaos and confusion that characterises international politics and the case for delivering factual analysis on how developments are impacting the lives of individuals is overwhelming.

I knew I had to come up with something completely different to stand out and deliver something meaningful in an already crowded field of outlets covering politics. That is why individuals, not large multinational corporations, had to be at the heart of our analysis.

To deliver a radically alternative way of covering politics, I was convinced that I had to build an inspirational team. A team that would standout and be able to offer a refreshingly different approach to political analysis. I am extremely proud to have built a global team of experts, entirely of under 30s. Having a young team ensures we can combine recently acquired academic rigour with professional impartiality to our work. Most importantly, we are a social impact organisation entirely made up of volunteers who are driven to deliver on the Polis Analysis mission.
