26 January 2015

The Centre for the Study of Democracy is working with Westminster Abbey Institute as part of the Stand and Be Counted programme to investigate how best to understand and respond to anti-politics.

As the election campaign gears up, the level of disenchantment and disillusionment with the established political parties is ever more vivid. Anti-politics has become a significant feature of contemporary political life, but the sources and manifestations of anti-politics are not well understood.

The first event, on Wednesday 28 January is a Conversation with Parliamentarians and the second, on Monday 9 February, is an open Research Seminar.
