Tackling Britain's Social Mobility Problem

Stephen Machin

Thursday 7 November 2019, 6:30-8:00pm

Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

Hosted by the Centre for Economic Performance 

What can we do to improve Britain's low social mobility - one of the most pressing issues facing young people growing up today? Boris Johnson continues a tradition that has stood for generations. Every Prime Minister since the end of World War Two who has attended an English University has attended just one institution: Oxford. Meanwhile 100,000s of children leave school each year without the basics to get on in life. Britain suffers from low social mobility. But how can we improve it? Our panel will discuss potential solutions, and you the audience will vote on the solution.

Stephen Machin (@s_machin_) is Professor of Economics and Director of the Centre for Economic Performance, LSE.

Lee Elliot Major (@Lem_Exeter) is Professor of Social Mobility, University of Exeter and Visiting Senior Fellow, LSE.

This event is part of the ESRC's Festival of Social Science. It is free to attend and open to all. Places are offered on a first-come-first-serve basis. More information here.
