"Two Cheers for Europe's Populist Backlash!" - Munk Annual Lecture in European Affairs

Liberalism in Britain and Europe has over-reached itself in recent decades-on European integration, immigration and much besides-and populism has been striking back. That is not all bad. Politics needs a new settlement between liberalism and populism.

David Goodhart is a British journalist and think-tanker. He worked for the Financial Times for 12 years and was the founding editor of the monthly current affairs magazine Prospect for 15 years. He then became director of the centre left think tank Demos. He is now director of the Integration Hub website and head of the Demography, Immigration and Integration unit at the Policy Exchange think tank. His book, The British Dream: Successes and Failures of Post-War Immigration, was published in 2013.

This event is free an open to all. Registration is required. For further information, please contact Joseph Hawker
