Who we are

We are an independent think tank that produces innovative research, tech and policy proposals related to the future of work, climate and welfare. Our audiences are governments, journalists, activists, trade unions and political parties. Our research grounds policy that can function in a world of automation and underemployment, as well as persistent economic inequality and environmental crisis. Our objective is to envisage and communicate a world that moves beyond climate catastrophe, overwork and mass poverty to one which prioritises democracy, free time, security and sustainability.

Autonomy has established itself as an innovative, nimble research organisation that has had significant impact within public debates around the future of work and climate. Our work has garnered praise from the MPs from a variety of political parties, leading economists and wider civil society actors. Our research regularly appears in mainstream media of all kinds, from the tabloids to the World Economic Forum.

Here are the research themes we focus on:
