Event: Fabian Seminar ‘Public Attitudes to Poverty and Inequality’, Birmingham


Date: 23rd July 2009
Time: 11am-12.30pm
Location: Maple House, 150 Corporation Street, Birmingham, B4 6TB

The Fabian Society and Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) are holding a seminar in Birmingham examining two new reports supported by the JRF: Understanding attitudes to tackling economic inequality by the Fabian Society.

The new research from the Fabian Society identifies what motivates the public’s beliefs and attitudes to inequality. The work also considers measures the public supports to promote fairness and what conditions are needed to tap into this support. This goes beyond previous work which has tended to focus on revealing attitudes rather than explaining them and considering their implications.

This event will include a presentation of the project’s findings and it’s implications for anti-poverty campaigns followed by a discussion with the panel and audience about the local politics of anti-poverty campaigning and the implications of the findings for communications strategies and anti-poverty policy in different regions of the UK.
