Brexit has failed to address any of the substantive challenges of the day. It was not a ‘year zero’ for the many problems facing the United Kingdom and, in fact, reflected decades of public policy failure. That’s the argument of Oxford University professor Danny Dorling in his provocative new report, Brexit: a failed project in a failing state, published by the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung and Another Europe Is Possible.

Join us at the report launch in person or online on Wednesday 25 October, 6pm BST to discuss how we can organise to fight government failure and overturn the consequences of years of destructive policy.
The in-person event takes place from 6pm on Wed 25 Oct at Room 1.08 Marshall Building, London School of Economics and Political Science, Lincoln Inn Fields London WC2A 3LY.
