Lifting our Sights

A research project examining future socio-economic and social-political trends and the likely impact of those trends on the Armed Forces Community.

Using a mix of foresight and ethnographic research the Lifting our Sights Programme strives to shine a light on the changing nature of UK society, and identify the trends that are likely to be most relevant to those members of the Armed Forces who will undergo transition over the next decade. As the UK adapts to the realities of a post-Covid, post-Brexit world, it explores what the potential economic, social and political shifts will be and how will they impact the Armed Forces, their role, their purpose and their place in the national consciousness.
