Farewell welfare? UCL Legal and Political Theory Forum

22 March 2011, 6.30pm, Bentham Main Lecture Theatre (Faculty of Laws)

UCL Legal and Political Theory Forum provides an opportunity for distinguished academics, politicians and others working in the public policy sector to debate the philosophical issues underlying current debates in public policy. This year a panel of notable speakers will be discussing the coalition government’s proposed cuts to the welfare state: Farewell welfare? Does a fair society require a welfare state? If welfare cuts are needed, how can their fairness be ensured? Can it ever be fair for cuts to hit the poor hardest? The Forum will be chaired by Professor Albert Weale (UCL School of Public Policy), and we are pleased to announce that speakers for the event will include: Jon Cruddas MP (Labour MP for Dagenham and Rainham) Dr Belinda Brooks-Gordon (Birkbeck; Lib Dem Councillor for Cambridgeshire)  Dr Stuart White (Oxford University) Max Wind-Cowie (Head of the Progressive Conservatism Project at Demos) Professor Jonathan Wolff (UCL)

The Forum will take place on 22nd March at 6.30-8.30pm in the Bentham Main Lecture Theatre, Bentham House (Faculty of Laws), and will be followed by a drinks reception in the School of Public Policy building, 29/30 Tavistock Square. No reservation is required, but we advise that you arrive in good time to ensure yourself a seat.
