Journalist and writer Cristina Odone sets out the case for a new values-led agenda to counter the ‘bad ideas’ of the likes of so-called Islamic State, Vladimir Putin and far-right organisations such as France’s Front National.

Odone is director of a new Centre for Character and Values that will be launched by the Legatum Institute in early 2016. She argues that we are losing the high ground to people who believe more strongly in their bad ideas than we do in our good ones. The new centre will be based on the twin pillars of advocacy and inquiry and will make the intellectual case for a values-led agenda across multiple sectors.

Odone has been editor of the Catholic Herald, deputy editor of the New Statesman, and television critic for The Daily Telegraph. She is now a columnist for The Daily Telegraph and a contributor to radio and television programmes including Question Time. She has written four novels The Shrine, A Perfect Wife, The Dilemmas of Harriet Carew and The Good Divorce Guide. The Legatum Institute is an international think tank and educational charity that aims to promote prosperity by revitalising capitalism and democracy.
