In April 2018, the Social Security Advisory Committee – in partnership with the Institute for Government – brought together former ministers, civil servants, academics, parliamentarians and other advisers to discuss progress over the past 30 years in reforming working-age social security.

This paper considers what lessons can be learnt for future reform from what has worked – and what has not worked so well – in the past.

Our ‘roundtable’ of 26 attendees took place under the Chatham House rule.
