Glasshouse Forum has a small and efficient core organisation, but aims to build a large network of researchers, academics and other people who can contribute to the mission.
Glasshouse Forum is dedicated to strengthening research and deepening the debate about capitalism through various forms of meetings, seminars and publications.
The work procedure will vary from project to project depending on subject and participants but will typically be an international comparative 18 months programme of enquiry and discussion.
To cover the core dimensions of the specific subject, we envisage applying a multi-disciplinary approach.
Participating researchers will over the project period take part in a series of round-table conferences, commission new research where appropriate, write articles and contribute to a final publication.
The research teams meet a few times a year in buildings and spaces around Europe that we call our "homes". These include Maison Louis Carré outside Paris, The Bauhaus Foundation in Dessau outside Berlin and Proventus in Stockholm.
Glasshouse Forum is politically independent and should not engage in lobbying activities, or make policy recommendations. Thus, the main outcome of Glasshouse Forum activities will be asking the key questions, finding the key facts, analysing and presenting them, and thereby contribute to debate and discussion.
The main communication channels will be the Glasshouse Forum’s website, a series of short research reports, the final project publication and public seminars.
Glasshouse Forum has first hand right to publishing research and other material produced within the forum’s projects. Thereafter, researchers are free to use their research as and where they want.
