An event to mark the publication of Professor Adrian Pabst's latest book – Postliberal Politics

About this event

To mark the publication of his latest book – Postliberal PoliticsProfessor Adrian Pabst, Deputy Director for Social and Political Economy, will be in conversation with Jason Cowley, editor of the New Statesman, at an exclusive event hosted by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR).

In his book Adrian argues that the alternative to failed ideologies is post-liberalism – a public political philosophy that combines greater economic justice with more social stability and ecological balance. This is the new political battleground: whoever can offer a consistent programme that fuses economically radical and socially moderate policies will be the dominant force in politics.

This event will examine this idea, exploring the shape of contemporary politics and questioning whether we’re seeing a fundamental realignment of politics or a mere tactical repositioning. How can we conceptualise what is going on when illiberal liberalism, techno-populism and the right’s turn towards the big state are just some of the paradoxical phenomena?

The discussion will be divided into different segments, and participants will be able to put questions to both speakers.

Please note that this webinar will be recorded for future distribution online.
