Big Society and Social Policy in Britain: a panel discussion

Department of Social Policy and STICERD public debate

In 2010 prime minister David Cameron introduced the idea of the Big Society. It is

David Lewis is professor of social policy and development at LSE.

Rory Stewart is the member of Parliament for Penrith and
the Border.

Karl Wilding is NCVO's head of research. He is an honorary visiting fellow at Cass Business School's Centre for Charity Effectiveness.
