The Future of Conservatism: Nick Timothy in conversation with Michael Lind

Britain coming apart, not coming together, is one of the greatest challenges we face as a nation. Across the pond, centrifugal forces are also tearing American democracy apart and polarising politics. What answer does conservatism have to these challenges? What shared institutions and collective identities can help to build a more resilient economy and a stronger society? And what are some of the practical steps the centre-right should take in power in order to move towards a renewed form of conservatism?

This event will see Nick Timothy, former Downing Street Chief of Staff, discuss the future of conservatism with Michael Lind, influential American columnist and writer.
