Britain stands at a cross-road. The Brexit vote, and Corbyn’s surge in popularity, represent conflicting romantic conceptions of the country. Can this moment of idealism offer a chance to shape a new vision for Britain? And what would that look like, both domestically and internationally?

Danny Kruger is a Senior Fellow at the Legatum Institute think tank in London. He is the founder, and former Chief Executive, of two charities: Only Connect, a criminal justice project, and the West London Zone for Children and Young People, a place-based early intervention project. Danny read History at Edinburgh University and received a DPhil in History from Oxford University in 2000. Before working at Only Connect, Danny was Director of Studies at the Centre for Policy Studies; Chief Leader-Writer at the Daily Telegraph; and Special Adviser to David Cameron MP as Leader of the Opposition.

This event is part of the Aspects of Conservatism series exploring elements of a conservative outlook in more detail. The series is convened by Tom Simpson, Associate Professor of Philosophy & Public Policy, Blavatnik School of Government, and Senior Research Fellow, Wadham College, University of Oxford.
