Giddens' conclusions on the Global Third Way Debate

Sociologist and LSE Director Professor Anthony Giddens gives his final lecture in a lunchtime series about The Global Third Way Debate on Wednesday 17 January.

The author of The Third Way, Professor Giddens will conclude the five public lecture series by considering the issues the Third World raises for Third Way politics.

In previous lectures he discussed how globalisation and the new economy have changed the political arena, how Third Way ideas encompass new ideas on nation state, welfare state, poverty and inequality.

The lecture will be held from 1 to 2pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2. No ticket is required, and the lecture is free and open to all but latecomers may not be admitted.
