The Legatum Institute is an international think tank and educational charity focused on promoting prosperity. We do this by researching our core themes of revitalising capitalism and democracy. The Legatum Prosperity Index™, its signature publication, ranks 142 countries in terms of wealth and well-being.
Through research programmes including The Culture of Prosperity, Transitions Forum, Economics of Prosperity, and the Centre for Character and Values, the Institute seeks to understand what drives and restrains national success and individual flourishing. The Institute co-publishes with Foreign Policy magazine, the Democracy Lab, whose on-the-ground journalists report on political transitions around the world.
The Legatum Institute is based in London.
