Venue: Hong Kong Theatre, LSE, London WC2A 2AE
Speaker(s): Robin Murray and Gavan Titley
Chair: Professor Henrietta L. Moore

Our political leaders claim there is no alternative to austerity cuts. Henrietta L. Moore talks to Robin Murray and Gavan Titley who argue otherwise. Both provide examples of existing alternatives from the social economy and alternative media.

Robin Murray is a co-founder of Twin Trading, a pioneer of the fair trade movement, and of the environmental partnership Ekologica.

Gavan Titley is a lecturer in media studies at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, and a regular contributor to the Guardian.
