6-7.30pm – Keynote and discussion with Ed Miliband (Member of Parliament, United Kingdom).
Welcome & moderation: Helmut K. Anheier (President, Hertie School).
While Britain’s departure from the EU is certain, big decisions remain about what kind of relationship is forged for the future. For progressives in the UK and across Europe, there is no successful isolationist future. Ed Miliband of UK’s Labour Party will share his insights in a conversation with Helmut K. Anheier, President of the Hertie School of Governance, and answer questions from the audience.
Ed Miliband was elected MP for Doncaster North in 2005, serving as Minister for the Third Sector from 2006 and Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change from October 2008. He served as leader of the Labour Party from 2010 until 2015 and is continuing his work on tackling climate change and inequality from the backbenches. Ed Miliband studied philosophy, politics, and economics at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. He later took time out of politics to gain a MA in economics at the London School of Economics (LSE) and spend time as a visiting scholar at the Centre for European Studies of Harvard University in 2002/3.
