What I use research for: I advocate for Future Generations policy within the UK Parliament. This involves using cause priotisation research to decide where to focus my time and attention and using research on policy and governance to decide what to advocate for.
CSER: Overall CSER do more UK / EU policy related research work than other EA long-termism groups. Eg: on longterm policy making, on risk prevention policy, on defence procurement and AI. Also generally good to talk to on policy matters. Note I may be bias as I am a CSER Research Affiliate.
Next most useful:
FHI: Work relevant to biosecurity policy like this. Some stuff on risk prevention eg The Precipice book and this survey.
Global Priorities Project: this summary paper on x-risks
AllFed: this paper on food risks
OpenPhil: this and this table on policy priorities
EA Forum: general useful tool for feedback and new ideas.
Useful background newsletters from CSET, on EuropeanAI and the x-risk.net newsletter (which led me to this interesting paper on Existential security)
Not as known in EA but a shout outs are deserved to:
The Institute for Government
Roman Krznaric’s book The Good Ancestor
The School of International Futures
The Society for Decision Making Under Deep Uncertainty.
