Poverty, Life Chances, and Destitution – October, 2017


The Centre for Enterprise, Markets & Ethics (CEME) was delighted to hold a public lecture on “Poverty, Life Chances, and Destitution”. Our distinguished guest speaker was the Rt. Hon. Frank Field MP.

Frank Field has been the Labour Member of Parliament for Birkenhead since 1979. He is a long-time campaigner on poverty, low-pay, and welfare, often seeking radical solutions to complex problems. He has served in government and chaired numerous reviews and Select Committees. In 2010 Frank chaired an Independent Review on Poverty and Life Chances and now chairs the Foundation Years Trust to implement the Review’s main findings on how to prevent poor children becoming poor adults.

The event was hosted by Blackfriars Hall (University of Oxford) on Thursday, 19th October 2017. It was co-sponsored by CEME and the Las Casas Institute for Social Justice.
