Reinventing Social Democracy? Sanders, Corbyn and Beyond


Wednesday, April 13, 2016, 4:10pm to 5:30pm


Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, 124 Mount Auburn Street, Suite 200-North, Cambridge, MA

What are the particular challenges facing social democrats—or the millennial inheritors of the social democratic tradition—in the US, UK, and beyond? Join this discussion on the evolving prospects for social democratic parties across Europe and farther afield. We will explore emerging opportunities for experimentation within social democratic politics and the wider ‘ecosystem’ which surrounds it, including the interplay between NGOs/advocacy organizations, campaigns and candidates.
