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.
Does liberalism’s fading popularity reflect a growing disenchantment with economically liberal ideas or with the concept of liberalism itself? Are culture wars a battle within liberalism or against it? And, what does it mean to be a liberal in the twenty-first century?
