    Dates: 11 November 2013

    Despite economic figures in advance of any rich-world economy, the Australian Labour party suffered the ignominy of defeat at the hands of a Conservative opposition who ran a negative campaign about confected crises: a “budget emergency”; floods of immigration; a cost of living spiralling out of control; and the dramatic ramifications on government broad about by Labor’s internal failures and warring factions.

  • Europe's job crisis: Protecting decent work, protecting freedom of movement

    Dates: 30 September 2013
    Venue: St Matthew’s Conference Centre, 20 Great Peter Street, Westminster, SW1P 2BU
    There is a lively debate underway about movement of labour in the EU and its impact on the quality of work. Indeed, some have argued that low wage competition across Europe has created a precarious job situation for the lower skilled and less well educated. Concerns about fairness and a ‘race to the bottom’ have again come to the fore, while politicians search for solutions that can protect both decent work and the freedom of movement.
  • Responding to Populism: Contact Democracy and the Party of the Future

    Dates: 25 September 2013
    Venue: Brighton Holiday Inn, Lancing 1
    By “gunning for Labour”, UKIP poses a significant threat to the centre-left’s traditional voter base through stirring divisive and reactionary debates on immigration, welfare and Europe. But this volatile encroachment must also be seen as a corrective which compels Labour to innovate, re-politicise its policy offers and build new movements for change.
