If the centre-left wants to transform politics it needs to capture the spirit of the times and harness the new sources of energy in society. These have changed significantly since the mid-1990s and the ‘modernisation era’ which New Labour came to embody.

Understanding the political sociology of an era is important for winning elections, but more than that it can help leaders to transform their countries in ways that are enduring. This report looks at shifts in ‘political sociology’ and analyses the economic, social and cultural trends defining early 21st century Britain.
