Join Thought Brokers for a convivial evening of thinking and drinking at this pub forum exploring diverging perspectives on serious issues.
Welfare is an area of policy where those notionally on the left and the right find the least common ground with conflict on principles of care and responsibility; buying votes and mollifying the masses; taxation and redistribution; equality and fairness; pragmatism and ethics.
This event provides a platform for speakers from different political and ideological backgrounds to present their ideas on how politics and morality are tangled up in the context of welfare.
When: 6-8pm, Tuesday 21 August 2012.
Where: Former Glory, Lvl 2 East Village Hotel, 234 Palmer Street Darlinghurst
