FEPS-Fabian New Year’s Conference 2021: Rebuilding; Choices for the Left

Online - Saturday 16 January & Sunday 17 January

This New Year’s conference takes place under the continued shadow of the pandemic and will be held online for the first time. We will be meeting at a moment when the left in the UK and across Europe needs to look to the future, after Covid-19 and after Brexit. The conference will consider the policies that are needed to transform our society, economy and politics and seek a fresh vision for tackling the climate crisis and building a new partnership between the EU and UK.

The leader of the Labour Party, Keir Starmer MP, is confirmed as keynote speaker, alongside many others from the Shadow cabinet in the UK and other speakers from across Europe.

This annual joint conference sets the political debates for the new year and gathers a large and diverse audience together with high-level speakers.
