Our 2019 Bennett Conference for Public Policy explores practical ways in which policy can evolve to create a fairer and more equitable future. And how can we do this whilst avoiding some of the seismic democratic disruptions that have shaken the world in recent years?

On this theme our keynote talk will be from Dr Ben Goldacre (University of Oxford), doctor, best-selling author, academic and campaigner. He will be talking with Michael Blastland, author, journalist, and BBC Radio 4 broadcaster, who will chair the keynote.

The sessions include:

- The Wealth Economy: Social & Natural Capital – introducing our pioneering new project on metrics for sustainable growth and led by Dimitri Zenghelis (lead author, the Stern Review)

- What kinds of innovation policies and industrial strategy are most likely to sustain spatially inclusive and socially equitable economies?

- Predicting international political and economic risks - panel organised by the Centre for Science and Policy
