Commentators have been arguing about the role of class in determining life chances and life span for many years. In some ways the concept of class has become increasingly complex and fraught, until we see, for example, maps of the UK which show very different patterns of poverty, life and death.

This event will look at factors that shape our identities and lives, and ask how important class is.

The debate will be chaired by David Walker, Managing Director, Communications and Public Reporting, Audit Commissioner.

The speakers are:

Professor Fiona Devine, Head of School of Social Sciences, University of Manchester

Professor John Hills, Director, Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion, London School of Economics, and

Lee Elliot Major, Research Director, Sutton Trust
