Out with the old: what do people want from a new politics?

Big Tent Ideas Festival

Join us in the politics tent at this year’s Big Tent Ideas Festival.

Across the globe, the ripples of the financial crisis have spawned a series of new and in some cases very successful insurgent political movements. Traditional parties everywhere have struggled to respond.

Radical centre think tank, Radix, together with leading politicians and activists ask:

  • What are the common features of successful insurgent movements?
  • Can they equally promote centrist and extreme positions?
  • Could a new party or alliance breakthough in the UK or can the existing parties successfully reinvent themselves?
  • And is this trend essential malevolent, neutral or benign?
