Saturday 19 June saw the launch of the English language version of Podemos: In the Name of the People at the Centre for the Study of Democracy (CSD).

The book captures an extended conversation between Íñigo Errejón, the political secretary of Podemos, and Chantal Mouffe, Professor of Political Theory at CSD.

Chantal Mouffe was joined by the Guardian columnist and author Owen Jones, who wrote a foreword for the publication and Sirio Canós Donnay, translator of the book and member of Podemos London, for what proved to be a lively discussion of the theory and practice of Podemos. Íñigo Errejón was unable to attend because of the imminent Spanish election.

The event was preceded by a presentation and discussion of the French monograph What is a Leader in Democracy? Politics of Charisma by Jean-Claude Monod, CNRS Paris.
