David currently serves in Keir Starmer’s Shadow Cabinet as the Shadow Secretary of State for Justice and was previously a Minister for Culture and separately, Higher Education. He’s written several books, the latest of which “Tribes” offers some real insights on how identity is shaping culture, society and our politics.

In conversation with our Centre Director, they will explore David’s early life, his time in government and how he’s used the role of a MP to secure justice for the Windrush Generation and victims of the Grenfell fire.

This event is open to everyone but registration is required. Events are recorded and you can view past Power Hour events here.

Each Power Hour session seeks to exam a different aspect of power in politics and public life. From the role of special advisers to opposition backbench MPs, to Government Ministers and think tank directors, we spend 60 minutes with key decision makers looking at their early careers, the big issues they’ve grappled with and their hopes and fear for the future.
