At this year's The World Transformed festival, I caught up with poet, activist and SOAS lecturer Rafeef Ziadah.

She spoke to us about immigration policy, her vision of an economy for the many, and how a progressive movement can take power, in part 3/6 of our exclusive TWT series.

Where next for Labour in England?

The Labour party suffered across the UK last week, losing the Hartlepool by-election and a swathe of council seats in England, and getting its lowest ever vote share in a Scottish parliament election. How should it respond?

Join us for a live discussion on 13 Thursday, May at 5pm UK time.

Hear from:

Clive Lewis, MP for Norwich South and former leadership contender

Jeremy Gilbert, Co-author of ‘Hegemony Now: Power in the Twenty-First Century’

Maddy Kirkman, Labour candidate for Edinburgh Central, disability rights and tenants union activist

Chair, Caroline Molloy, editor, openDemocracyUK
