A new welfare state: Putting work at the heart of welfare

Mar 27, 2012
Mar 27, 2012
Portcullis House, House of Commons
London, SW1A 0AA United Kingdom

This event is the second series based on the ‘new centre-ground’ theme that has been developed by Ed Miliband. This seminar will discuss some of the proposals put forward in a new Progress and Centre for American Progress pamphlet, authored by Liam Byrne MP, looking at different aspects of ‘the new centre-ground’ and the policies progressives around the world will need to regain this ground and win re-election. A new welfare state is at the heart of the new centre-ground and Labour’s economic credibilty with the electorate.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Stephen Timms MP, shadow employment minister
  • James Purnell, Head of Open Left at Demos and former secretary of state for work and pensions
  • Ruth Lister, emeritus professor of  social policy, Loughborough University
  • Kirsty McHugh, chief executive, ersa – the Employment Related Services Association

Progressive centre-ground Labour politics does not come for free.
