How can progressive ideals equip us with the tools to uplift our society?


Amidst the rise of populism and anti-democratic sentiment, it’s often easy to feel pessimistic about the survival prospects of liberal and social democratic values. But the threats to progress stand alongside great opportunities, and progressive ideals recognise the potential for good in people and in politics. How can social democracy address our most pressing challenges, transcend tribal party politics, and cultivate a sense of citizenship? How can we protect and harness social democratic values to invigorate not just our institutions and our politics, but the culture, values, and character of our society?

A panel gathers in honour of David Marquand to discuss the place of social democracy in our society today.
