The Progressive Agenda Now

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Professor Roberto Mangabeira Unger
Chair: Jo Fidgen

Recorded on 14 November 2013 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

The progressive left lacks the imagination to tackle the fundamental problems of society. Renowned social theorist Roberto Unger calls on fellow progressives in Britain to think beyond current institutional arrangements.

Roberto Mangabeira Unger is the Roscoe Pound Professor of Law at Harvard University. He served as a minister in the Brazilian government of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva from 2007-2009.

Jo Fidgen is a presenter and reporter on BBC radio. Previous editions of Analysis have focused on pornography, feminism and the new Swedish model. She studied philosophy at Oxford and political theory at the LSE.
