Organizational Status: Independent institute, founded in 1996.

General Description: NPI's mission is to advance social justice within a market economy. Wholly independent, NPI is funded on a project basis by charitable foundations, private companies, trade unions, voluntary sector organizations, and public sector bodies. The majority of the institute's work leads directly to public-domain reports, usually published under its own name, and it also undertakes some consultancy work. NPI's aim of advancing social justice within a market economy translates into a focus on all aspects of poverty and social exclusion as well as wider issues concerning social inequality. Another focus of interest is the performance of eessential' services-from utilities and finance to education-and how government should seek to influence the behavior of the now mainly private-sector providers of such services. NPI has worked on subjects across a range of sectors, including national and local government, education, utilities and finance, the voluntary sector, and tax and social security systems.
