London, SW1A 0AA United Kingdom

This event is the first in a series based on the ‘new centre-ground’ theme that has been developed by Ed Miliband. This event marks the launch of a 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. Defining the centre-ground is first step towards winning it.
