What’s the agenda for fixing poverty and tackling inequalities?
Thursday 6 July, 14:00–18:00 BST Attlee Suite, Portcullis House 1 Victoria Embankment, London W1A 2JR
As the election countdown begins and the political parties prepare their manifestos, it is vital that we have the best ideas for fixing poverty and tackling inequalities on the table.
To galvanise the debate, the APPG on Inclusive Growth, the Policy Institute at King’s College London and the Fairness Foundation are convening academics, policy experts, think tanks, campaigners and politicians to provide a catalyst for the critical thinking required in the months ahead.
This major conference at the House of Commons will share the results of ground-breaking new research into public attitudes to inequality and to a wide range of potential policy solutions, and will explore whether and where there might be an emerging consensus on those solutions that could unite a broad cross-section of the public, as well as experts and political parties.
Speakers: Liam Byrne MP and John Penrose MP, Co-Chairs of the APPG on Inclusive Growth; Paul Johnson, Director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies; Bobby Duffy, Director of the Policy Institute at King’s College London; Ryan Shorthouse, Chief Executive of Bright Blue; Will Snell, Chief Executive of the Fairness Foundation; Lindsay Judge, Research Director at the Resolution Foundation; Iain Mansfield, Director of Research and Head of Education and Science at Policy Exchange; Emma Revie, Chief Executive of the Trussell Trust; Lucy Barnes, Associate Professor in Comparative Politics at University College London; Arun Advani, Director of the Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy at the University of Warwick and Priya Minhas, Senior Research Manager at Opinium.
