The Political Quarterly, in conjunction with the Department of Political Science / School of Public Policy at UCL, The Centre for the Study of British Politics and Public Life at Birkbeck and the Institute of Global Governance (IGG) are hosting a public debate about Colin Crouch's new book Making Capitalism Fit for Society on 30 January 2014 at 5.30 pm in Bloomsbury.
In his book, Colin offers ways of challenging neo-liberalism.  He argues that accepting capitalism need not mean we have to accept the full neo-liberal agenda of unfettered markets and absent social provision.  He offers instead a vision of a more assertive social democracy with a range of policy options.  The book builds on the ideas that Colin has been developing and advocating since his Post Democracy (2004). It has attracted considerable attention in Germany, Austria and Scandinavia where its proposals are being debated across the political left.  We think that the debate should be brought to the UK.

Panellists are: David Coen (UCL), Helen Thompson (Cambridge), Andrew Gamble (Cambridge), Virginie Guiraudon (Sciences Po) and chair Tony Wright (Birkbeck and UCL).
