The Orwell Foundation

The Orwell Foundation aims to offer a platform for debate and discussion designed to appeal to the widest possible public audience, connecting with everyone to whom George Orwell and his writings are a source of inspiration, from policy-makers and politicians to students and school children.

From the corruption of truth to pervasive new technologies, and from poverty and inequality to the rise of political extremism, George Orwell's concerns are as relevant to the twenty-first century as they were to the circumstances in which his great novels were conceived. We are hard at work to sustain this remarkable legacy. The Orwell Foundation is based at the Institute of Advanced Studies, UCL.
