George Lakey – A divided Britain: What can we learn from the Nordics?

6th October 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

George Lakey will present the first Howard Clark Memorial Lecture on Nonviolence:
“A DIVIDED BRITAIN: WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THE NORDICS?”

George is a leading activist and educator on Nonviolence and resistance. In his new book he takes a radical view of how we approach division and inequality and the responses we can make.

In July 2017 Melville House released “Viking Economics: How the Scandinavians got it right and how we can, too,” a book that was made “Book of the Week” in 2016 by London Times Higher Education.  George speaks to the polarization now experienced in both Britain and his own country and predicts that it will become more extreme as inequality heightens.  What he has learned from studying the Nordic countries is that polarization may offer as much opportunity as anxiety. ”
