As the political fault lines of a new era take shape, what will be the defining politics of the next decade? In the wake of an era of social dislocation and rapid change one response will be a search for belonging and cultural familiarity in face of the destruction of old ways of life; and, as we saw on 4 June, this may find expression in support for a politics of xenophobia. A new political culture will need to speak about a sense of home, place and belonging that can give security, meaning and value to people. The way people value these, and their reaction to threats against them, will shape the post-crash political landscape.

Registration: £25 (includes an excellent lunch).
