The Brexit vote, the reasons it happened, and the impact it will have are putting the economy front and centre of political life for years to come. But how does Labour respond to both the causes and consequences of Brexit? What does the party have to say to those that feel 21st Century Britain has too little to offer them? Who might be the winners and losers of Brexit? And how should policy change to reflect the new world we live in?
In a major set piece debate on the future of Labour’s approach to the economy senior politicians and economists will debate these questions and more. At the event at the Labour conference fringe, the Resolution Foundation will present research on the causes of Brexit while the IFS’s Paul Johnson will offer his assessment of what Brexit means for Britain. Some of the Labour Party’s most senior politicians will then set out how the Party should respond to the momentous events of this summer. The panel will then take part in an audience Q&A.
Venue: Auditorium 1B, ACC conference centre, Liverpool
Please note that the event takes places within the secure zone of Labour Party Conference and as such a conference pass is required to attend.
