  • Progressive politics after the crash: Governing from the left

    Dates: 4 September 2013
    Venue: Westminster
    Those who hoped the collapse of financial markets would usher in the end of neoliberalism and rehabilitate support for traditional social democratic policy programmes have been disappointed. It is not only the irrationality of markets which is the focus of public discontent, but the inefficiency of states and the inability of elected governments to humanise and control global market capitalism.
  • Prospects for Revival in the Eurozone – and what place for Britain in Europe?

    Dates: 28 February 2013
    Venue: City of London

  • Regulation and consumer protection - An emerging opportunity for progressive politics

    Dates: 15 May 2013
    Venue: Westminster
    A debate on how can the centre-left can use the consumer protection agenda to strengthen public trust in politics (and regulation).
  • 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.
  • Sitting at the 'top table'? The Future of the UK in European Financial Services

    Dates: 12 July 2013
    Venue: Europe House, London
    Policy Network will host a public debate on the future of the UK in European Financial Services. The event will question the impact of the euro area’s integration on the regulation of financial services in the EU, and the place of the UK in this context. Recent controversies about the banking union, the cap on bonuses and the financial transaction tax initiated by eleven eurozone members have raised doubts about the ability of the City to defend its interests in Brussels in the future.
  • Six years of growth, no recession, highest GDP per head in the world - what could possibly go wrong?

    Dates: 11 November 2013
    Venue: Westminster
    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.
  • Social democracy and the nation after the crash

    Dates: 17 October 2013

  • The EU, Eurozone and Britain: The calm before the storm?

    Dates: 10 December 2013
    Venue: One Great George Street, Westminster, SW1P 3AA
    After years of economic turmoil, many analysts now believe the continent has finally weathered the worst of the financial storm. Others would argue, however, that the EU is no way near ‘normality’.
