Universal Credit: A policy under review

Resolution Foundation has brought together an expert panel of labour market economists, welfare specialists, employment practitioners and other experts to review the current design of Universal Credit and its likely impacts and propose changes that would make the policy more likely to support people to get into and progress in work. The cumulative impact of changes proposed by the panel on the number of people moving into and on in work will be estimated. This paper sets out the scope of the panel’s review.
