Michael Wills MP, Minister of State in the Ministry of Justice, will debate the issue of Globalisation and Identity, at a special roundtable Policy Network seminar in London on the 23 October.

The minister will address the importance of identity for left-wing politics, why national identity matters, the pressures that globalisation places on it and the role of government in managing identity issues. For more information about the seminar, please contact Joel Sandhu on +44 (0)20 7340 2200 or email jsandhu@policy-network.net.

Background

The event is the seventh in a series of seminars Policy Network is holding as part of an informal working group on globalisation and social justice.

Previous speakers in the series include Dr Waltraud Schelkle, Lecturer in Political Economy at the London School of Economics; Stephany Griffiths-Jones, Professor at the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex; David Held, Professor of Political Science at the London School of Economics; Richard Wilkinson, Professor of Social Epidemiology at the University of Nottingham; and Will Hutton, the Chief Executive of the Work Foundation and author of The Writing On The Wall: Why We Must Embrace China.

The working group will take forward the work of Policy Network’s flagship Globalisation and Social Justice research initiative, and will run until the end of 2007. The group will investigate the global dimension to domestic policy challenges, and will run alongside the programme of international dialogues that Policy Network is hosting this year in Chile, Australia, the United States and Brussels, as part of a contribution to an International Policy Commission.
