Event update: Debating the new politics of disadvantage

18 Jul 2012

On the 11 July IPPR hosted an event with LankellyChase on how we can build a new political agenda for the most disadvantaged in society. The event previews the release of a report written by IPPR for LankellyChase that charts some possible ways towards a strong and stable agenda in this area.

IPPR director Nick Pearce delivered a keynote speech that explored the role of politics and political discourse on policymaking for people experiencing severe and multiple disadvantages across the last fifteen years as well as drew out lessons from this for the future. Kate Green MP, shadow equalities minister, David Burrowes MP and David Hall-Matthews discussed how we need to move this agenda forward as well as debated. The event was attended by over 100 delegates from across the social policy field.

A podcast of the event is available below as well as videos with speakers and delegates.
