In his inaugural lecture as a Visiting Professor in Practice at LSE’s School of Public Policy, Sir Nick will assess and analyse the political landscape of the UK and other western democracies.

To what extent does the new ‘open vs closed’ philosophy provide a compelling narrative to understand contemporary political discourse? Is the traditional left/right understanding of politics now defunct? And if so, what are the lessons and the challenges that politicians, policy-makers and societies more broadly should draw in order to find consensus, promote cohesion and to work with those ‘outside the bubble’? 

Nick Clegg (@nick_clegg) served as Deputy Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 2010 to 2015 and as Leader of the Liberal Democrats from 2007 to 2015. He was the MP for Sheffield Hallam from 2005 to 2017 and was a Member of the European Parliament from 1999 to 2004. He now heads a think-tank, Open Reason.

Tony Travers is Interim Dean of the School of Public Policy at LSE.

In September 2018, LSE’s School of Public Policy fully replaces the existing Institute of Public Affairs. The School of Public Policy will be the home for LSE’s Master of Public Administration (MPA), Executive MPA and Executive MPP degrees.
