The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) is a think tank set up in 2004 by Iain Duncan Smith.

The organisation's stated aim is to "put social justice at the heart of British politics".[1] The think-tank has been labelled one of the most influential on the British Conservative Party under the leadership of David Cameron.[2]

One of its most notable reports was Breakthrough Britain[3]. It has also produced well-publicised reports into gang culture,[4] modern slavery, [5], addiction,[6] family breakdown, [7] and educational failure.[8]

In 2012, the CSJ announced it would carry out the study Breakthrough Britain II.[9]
