The leak of Mossack Fonseca’s papers earlier in the year gave us an insight into the complexity of the international tax system. What does the leak tell us about tax and corporate secrecy? What can governments do to reassure citizens? And how should the Labour Party respond?
‘THE POLICY FACTOR!’ is a talent show-style policy debate that makes the most of audio-visual tools to engage with politicians, policy experts, commentators and audiences both within and beyond the fringe. Each interactive event will explore a positive policy idea for the next Parliament, in the style of an ‘audition’. Responding to the proposal, a ‘judging panel’ will be comprised of individuals representing a variety of views, for example the party, the press, or the people.
The big idea? To find new talent to challenge ‘politics-as-usual’.
