Harry Farmer is a policy researcher at Involve. He is fascinated by the power of deliberative processes to enable governments to negotiate controversial policy decisions - particularly those presented by emerging technologies and demographic change.
He holds a first-class degree in philosophy from the University of Warwick and a master’s in the same from University College London. Partly as a consequence of this, he is drawn to issues that straddle the boundaries of policy, ethics and political philosophy.
Prior to joining Involve, Harry worked at a political consultancy specialising in health, where he focused on questions of NHS resource allocation. He has also worked at Nesta and the public services think tank Reform.
