The 2019 Cumberland Lodge Debate, held at Goodenough College, London, explored new challenges facing democracy in today's digital age, and opportunities for positive change, drawing on insights from Lord Howell of Guildford's book, Look Where We're Going: Escaping the Prism of Past Politics.


The debate was chaired by our Chair of Trustees, the Baroness Prashar of Runnymede, and we were joined by panellists, Dr Katharine Dommett (Senior Lecturer in the Public Understanding of Politics, University of Sheffield), Lord Howell (life peer and Chair of the House of Lords International Relations Committee), and Marnie Howlett (PhD candidate in the Department of International Relations at the London School of Economics, and an international student member of Goodenough College).
