Description

2019 TASC Annual Lecture

Jack Shenker, award-winning journalist, will talk about the importance of grassroots politics in an era of institutional stasis across liberal democracies. In Ireland this type of politics emerged during the water charge protests and also influenced the success of the Citizens Assembly.

Focusing specifically on the UK, Shenker will ask how and why the tectonic plates beneath the surface of formal politics are shifting so dramatically.

Drawing on exceptional access to some of the UK’s most exciting and dynamic new political movements, Shenker will discuss how the collapse of a paradigm that has structured our world for forty years is fuelling political engagement of a completely different sort: local, personal, effective and utterly fearless.

We do hope that you can join us for this exciting evening of discussion.
