Renewal and Policy Network Event - Populism, power and place

Thursday 11 September, 8.45-10.45am
Policy Network, 11 Tufton Street, Westminster, SW1P 3QB

Speakers: Andrew Adonis (UK shadow infrastructure minister); Jonathan Carr-West (chief executive, Local Government Information Unit); Gerry Hassan (research fellow in cultural policy, University of the West of Scotland); Kat Healy (policy, research and evaluation officer, Community Foundation for Northern Ireland); Joe Goldberg (cabinet member of Haringey council); Sara Llewellin (chief executive, Barrow Cadbury Trust).

The event is kindly supported by the Barrow Cadbury Trust as part of the Policy Network/Barrow Cadbury Trust project, ‘Understanding the Populist Signal’. It is co-organised with Renewal: A Journal of Social Democracy.
