Event: Populism and extremism in Greece, the Netherlands and the UK

15 January 2013

Our editorial partners Counterpoint  are delighted to organise an event with Tristram Hunt MP on populism and extremism in Greece, the Netherlands and the UK. The event will take place on January 21st from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at the Grimond Room of Portcullis House, Westminster, London. openDemocracy readers are welcome but places are limited. See event and booking details.

The panel is chaired by Tristram Hunt MP and also includes Aristos Doxiadis, Manos Matsaganis, Yvonne Zonderop, Sunder Katwala, and Catherine Fieschi. See the Reluctant Radicals' partnership page for further examination of the kind of risks that generate support for xenophobic populist parties, as well as the kind of risk these parties pose in political and policy terms.

Why we're suing over the £23m NHS data deal with 'spy tech' firm Palantir

Right as the NHS battles 'vaccine hesitancy', why is the government giving a CIA-backed firm – whose spyware has been accused of creating ‘racist’ feedback loops in US policing – a major, long-term role in handling our personal health information, and in England's cherished NHS?

Get the inside story from the journalists and lawyers battling to force transparency from the government on what they're doing with public money – and our health records.

Join us for this free event on 4 March at 5pm UK time/12pm EST.
