Economic Justice for the North West | Manchester, UK
June 27, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
What does economic justice mean for the North West?
The UK economy is not working. It is no longer delivering rising standards for a majority of the population. Too many people are in insecure jobs; young people are set to be poorer than their parents; the nations and regions of the UK are diverging further.
The IPPR Commission on Economic Justice was established in 2016 in the wake of the vote to leave the EU to examine the challenges facing the UK economy and to make recommendations for reform. Its final report Prosperity and Justice: A Plan for the New Economy, published in September 2018, made the case for a radical overhaul of our economy.
Join IPPR for an event involving people from across the North West to share your experience and put your questions to policymakers and community leaders. The event will take place on Thursday 27th June, 17:30-20:00 at Friends’ Meeting House, 6 Mount Street, Manchester M2 5NS. The event will open with refreshments at 17:30, with speeches beginning at 18:00. It will then finish with further refreshments between 19:30-20:00.
