The 2019 FEPS-Fabian New Year Conference takes place just two months before the UK is due to leave the European Union, in the week of the postponed vote on Theresa May’s Brexit deal. The day will focus on the next stages of the Brexit negotiations and what a Labour government can do to transform the country.
We warmly invite you to join us to hear from our three senior keynote speakers, shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer MP, shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry MP, and the deputy leader of the Labour party Tom Watson MP.
With so much of the Brexit process still uncertain, the FEPS-Fabian conference will be an essential opportunity for attendees, politicians, experts and commentators to discuss the next steps for the left in the UK and Europe.
The conference will also look beyond Brexit, to consider the UK and EU post-Brexit and a new left agenda, from defence and policing to the economy, mental health and much more. For the left to successfully transform the country, a strong Brexit deal must come alongside a compelling vision for the future and a radical social and economic programme.
Speakers include: Nia Griffith MP (shadow defence secretary), Barbara Keeley MP (shadow mental health and social care minister), Wayne David MP (shadow defence minister), Jim McMahon MP (shadow local government minister), Luciana Berger MP (Liverpool Wavertree), Kate Green MP (Stretford & Urmston), Emma Reynolds MP (Wolverhampton North East), Wes Streeting MP (Ilford North), Stephen Kinnock MP (Aberavon), Lord Alf Dubs (Labour peer), Lord Roy Kennedy (shadow minister), Richard Corbett MEP (leader, EPLP), Mary Honeyball MEP (London), Dame Vera Baird QC (Police and Crime Commissioner), Sophie Linden (deputy mayor for policing and crime, London), Cllr Stephanie Cryan (Southwark Council), Professor Anand Menon (The UK in a Changing Europe), Paul Mason (The Guardian), Grace Blakeley (New Statesman),Sophia Gaston (LSE & Henry Jackson Society), Stephen Bush (New Statesman), Apsana Begum (Momentum), Lucy Fisher (The Times), Tamas Boros (Policy Solutions), Sheldon Thomas (Gangsline), Mandy Mitchell (Solace Women’s Aid), Ania Skrzypek (FEPS), Miatta Fahnbulleh (New Economics Foundation), Professor Ozlem Onaran (University of Greenwich), Esther Sample (Safer London), Charlotte Billingham (FEPS), Sunder Katwala (British Future), Liam Kennedy (CLASS), Jane Williams (The Magpie Project), Dr Sonia Adesara (Young Fabians), Gillian Connor (Rethink Mental Illness), Sienna Rodgers (LabourList), Lisa Rafferty (Homeless Link), Olivia Bailey (Fabian Society), Melanie Smallman (SERA), Mike Galsworthy (Scientists for EU), Laurie Laybourn-Langton (IPPR), Sian Elliot (Fabian Women’s Network), Paula Surridge (University of Bristol), Peter Betts (Chatham House), Josh Abey (Fabian Society), Amy Mount (Green Alliance), Kate Dearden (Community), Andrew Harrop (Fabian Society), Professor Thom Brooks(Durham Law School), Ivana Bartoletti (chair, Fabian Society) and many more to be announced.
