Join Rowenna Davis (Teacher, Writer and Author), Nick Gillespie (Journalist, Commentator and Editor-in-Chief of Reason.com), James Panton (Associate Professor of Philosophy at the Open University) and Łukasz Pawłowski (Managing Editor & Columnist, Kultura Liberalna) for a debate on what liberalism is and why it suddenly appears to be falling into malaise.
