Event description

Description

Join us on Wednesday 18 September to hear from Michael Dimock, President of the Pew Research Center, as he outlines the Center's excellent research on trust, facts and democracy – including drawing on recent research into misinformation and political polarisation.

We'll be joined by a great panel to discuss the findings and what they mean for society:

  • Sara Hagemann, Associate Professor in European Politics at the LSE
  • Paula Surridge, Political sociologist at the University of Bristol
  • Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of the RSA
  • Bobby Duffy, Professor of Public Policy and Director of the Policy Institute, King's College London (chair)

This event will be followed by a drinks reception


This is a free event, which means we overbook to allow for no-shows and to avoid empty seats. While we generally do not have to turn people away, this does mean we cannot guarantee everyone a place. Admission is on a first come, first served basis.


Please note we may video and take photos at the event for our own internal and external marketing purposes – if you would prefer not to be featured, please let us know in advance or make yourself known to a member of the events team on the night.
