Anne Power writes in The Guardian about Octaiva Hill's enduring relevance in social policy.
Demos collections are about bringing together leading thinkers and experts to illuminate and challenge major issues facing politics and society. We consult intellectuals and commentators from the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Conservative Minister David Willetts to Blue Labour guru Maurice Glasman, from journalist Jenni Russell to social reformer Baroness Neuberger, and from philosopher Julian Baggini to illustrator Quentin Blake.
Forthcoming collections include:
How the ideas and ideals of the C19th social reformer and campaigner continue to be relevent in modern Britain.
Why we need to consider social mobility through the frame of values and disposition rather than purely on the basis of economic advancement.
