After a shock election result, a panel of leading analysts will ask what lies ahead for Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour and what the party should do next.

Stephen Fisher is Associate Professor in Political Sociology and Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford. Fisher's research focuses on political attitudes and behaviour, especially on elections and voting in Britain and elsewhere. He has developed a method for long-range election forecasting, which was covered extensively in the media in the 2015 UK General Election.

Rachel Shabi is a British journalist and author. She is a contributing writer to The Guardian. She has also written extensively on British politics, as well as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the Middle East. Her award-winning book, Not the Enemy: Israel's Jews from Arab Lands, was published in 2009. She received the International Media Awards Cutting Edge prize in 2013, the Anna Lindh Journalism Award for reporting across cultures in 2011, and was shortlisted for the Orwell Prize the same year. 

Stewart Wood is a Labour member of the House of Lords and a Fellow of Magdalen College, where he taught politics from 1995-2011. From 2001-2007 he was a member of the Treasury’s Council of Economic Advisers, working on a range of public policy issues for the Chancellor of the Exchequer. From 2007-2010 he worked at 10 Downing Street as a Senior Special Adviser to Prime Minister Gordon Brown, leading on foreign policy (Europe, USA & Middle East); culture, media & sports policy; and Northern Irish affairs. He was a member of the Labour Shadow Cabinet & an adviser to Ed Miliband from 2010-2015. 

Robin Archer is Director of the Ralph Miliband Programme at LSE.
