Although the neoliberal economic settlement is unravelling, its political underpinning remains largely unchallenged. Our manifesto calls into question the neoliberal order itself, and argues that we need radical alternatives to its foundational assumptions.
To celebrate the completion of the Manifesto, Soundings organised a one day conference to discuss and develop the ideas outlined in the Manifesto, and seminars to accompany each instalment. A video of the manifesto launch is available here.
You can download and read the manifesto for free (PDF), or buy the print edition here.

‘The Kilburn Manifesto is a fitting testament to the contribution of Stuart Hall to British political life. It presents an incisive and powerful analysis of the current neoliberal moment making it essential reading for anyone interested not only in understanding the present but also in developing strategies for intervening into it.’
-Alan Finlayson, Professor of Political and Social Theory at The University of East Anglia
