Rethinking Democracy: Two events

Democratic politics is once again under attack – this time from populist nationalists, authoritarian rulers and new forms of political communication.

We have two events coming up showcasing Rethinking Democracy, an important new collection of essays edited by Andrew Gamble and Tony Wright, in which leading academics explores the problems of democracy and suggests ways it might now be extended and deepened.

The first in London on 10 June "Rethinking Democracy: Can Democracy Survive in the Digital Age" at Kings College London with Helen Margetts, Martin Moore and Bobby Duffy. Register here.

The second is the book launch at the University of Sheffield on 18 June with Andrew Gamble, Alan Finlayson, Jackie Harrison and Michael Jacobs. Register here.

Copies of the book will be on sale at a special discounted price.

Please note: these are free events, which means we overbook to allow for no-shows and to avoid empty seats. While we generally do not have to turn people away, this does mean we cannot guarantee everyone a place. Admission is on a first come, first served basis.

Britain Beyond Brexit London book launch

Brexit represents a critical juncture in British politics. But our model of democratic capitalism faces deep challenges, whether or not the UK actually leaves the EU. Can Britain successfully adapt to the big generational, environmental and social challenges of the 2020s?

Join us on 15 May at the Resolution Foundation, London, for the launch of Britain Beyond Brexit – a Political Quarterly special edition edited by Gavin Kelly and Nick Pearce.

The event features a fantastic lineup of speakers: Ed Miliband MP (Former Leader of the Labour Party), Nicky Morgan MP (Chair of the Treasury Select Committee), Martin Sandbu (the Financial Times), Professor Diane Coyle (University of Cambridge), Gavin Kelly (the Resolution Trust), and Professor Nick Pearce (University of Bath).
