Parliamentary Affairs Annual Lecture 2014

'The future of political parties'

Peter Kellner

Hansard Society Trustee and President of YouGov

6:30pm, Tuesday 9th September
Boothroyd Room, Portcullis House, London SW1A 2LW

In the run up to party conference season and with the general election just months away it’s a timely moment to consider the future of political parties. A decline in the dominance of the major parties and a rise in the smaller parties, all tests the traditional stability of the party system. The relationship between social class and party loyalties is changing and membership of political parties is low. As the main parties struggle to respond to the nature and pace of change in our society, what does the future hold for our system of representative democracy?

This latest annual Parliamentary Affairs lecture will be given by Peter Kellner and chaired by the journal’s co-editors, Professor Philip Cowley of Nottingham University and Professor Jonathan Tonge of Liverpool University. Parliamentary Affairs is the Hansard Society’s journal, showcasing the best international research for anyone interested in contemporary politics. 

Welcome by Dr Ruth Fox
Director and Head of Research, Hansard Society

 Introduction by Professor Philip Cowley
Co-editor of Parliamentary Affairs and Professor of Parliamentary Government at the University of Nottingham

Chaired by Professor Jonathan Tonge
Co-editor of Parliamentary Affairs and Professor of Politics at the University of Liverpool
