22nd September 2020 | Live Stream

Across the world, nationalism is on the rise. Right-wing populists have taken hold of some of the most powerful countries, including the US, UK, India, Brazil, Italy, and Hungary. Is the best way to counter them to renew our confidence in liberal beliefs of freedom and reason?

Join us on 22nd September as political journalist Ian Dunt tells the epic story of liberalism, from its birth in the battle against absolute monarchy to the modern resistance against nationalism and populism. He’ll explore why liberalism is currently fractured and unfashionable – mocked by the right and dismissed by the left - but remains, even now, the most radical set of ideas in the history of humankind.

In setting out the principles and practices of liberalism, Ian will show why it remains our most powerful weapon to shatter the shiny lies of populists.

Ian will be in conversation with author and award-winning journalist Nichi Hodgson before we open up to your questions - LIVE.
