Labour and the Left After Corbyn

What does Keir Starmer’s leadership of the Labour Party mean for the left? Is this the end of the road for “Corbynism’? Or is there still hope for the left in the Labour Party? In his new book Searching for Socialism, published this month, Professor Leo Panitch examines Corbyn in the context of the Bennite left’s long struggle to transcend the limits of “parliamentary socialism” and democratise the party, as a precondition for democratising the state. He will discuss this, and the possibilities of the left today, with activists in Scotland
