The Future of the Left and its Economic Policy

Ralph Miliband Lecture Series

Date: Wednesday 8 February 2006
Time: 6.30pm
: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Professor Roberto Mangabeira Unger
Chair: Professor David Held

This lecture will argue for an alternative to the hollowing out of the transformative ambitions of the European Left by the 'Third Way', as well as to the old Leftist programme of governmental direction of the economy, compensatory redistribution through progressive taxation and public spending. Professor Unger rejects a single-minded focus on equality as the commanding goal of the Left.

Roberto Mangabeira Unger is professor of law at Harvard University. He has long been active in Brazilian and Latin American politics, as a candidate, political activist, and as an advisor to world leaders.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first serve basis.
