The Third Way: new perspectives on the Blair Clinton era

24 March 2018, 09:00 - 17:00
Cambridge campus

Tony Blair and Bill Clinton in Florence, Italy, November 20, 1999.
It is now over a decade since Tony Blair left Downing Street, and twenty five years since Bill Clinton won the US presidency. In light of recent political developments such as Donald Trump and Brexit on the one hand, and Jeremy Corbyn and Bernie Sanders on the other, this conference sees political scientists and historians give their verdict on the Third Way’s time in power.

It includes papers dealing not only with the experience of New Labour in the UK and the New Democrats in the US, but Australian and European dimensions too. Along the way, it will consider everything from the foreign policy of national leaders to the effects of domestic policy on ordinary citizens.

All are very welcome, whether from an academic background or not, and lunch (and teas and coffees during the day) are included in the registration fee.
