For the past 40 years, we’ve been told that governments can’t do much to change our lives: they can’t fix climate change, they can’t make housing cheaper, they can’t care for the old or educate the young properly. Suddenly this year, we learned that they can manage a complete alteration of every aspect of our lives in a matter of weeks. How come?…

With UK politics gripped by a “culture war” - which the right is winning - how should the left understand and respond to these dynamics?

The Pandemic has exposed the underlying faults in our society and our economy.

Structural, institutional, systemic – racism prefixed as such points to a concept that was first used by black American activists in the 60’s.

For decades, the people of Palestine and Kashmir have struggled against violent military occupations which have denied them autonomy and statehood.

This session will look at what's happening on the g…
 
We live in an era with the radical right on the rise. But where are they taking us?

Labour's 1983 election campaign was notoriously dubbed 'the longest suicide note in history'. It opened the way not only for a decade of Thatcher's brutal policies, but also for a sharp turn to the right in the Labour party itself. The idea that a left-wing program could never win an election became sacrosanct with the 1997 'New Labour' landslide. …
