During the Labour leadership election, Keir Starmer warned against the party lurching to the right. Five months into his leadership and it remains unclear where he plans to take Labour policy. Polls show that a large majority of members want the party to continue supporting a radical economic agenda and progressive domestic and foreign policy reforms. What should Labour’s priorities be in the coming years and what can we do to ensure the party goes into the next election committed to transformative policies that address the multiple crises of our time?

Speakers:
James Meadway is an economist and author. He is former economic policy advisor to shadow chancellor John McDonnell.
