Good Disagreement

At a time when public conversation seems to be increasingly polarised and bad-tempered (as illustrated by Brexit, the US presidential campaign, and debates about migration), there is a need to look again at how we can disagree constructively. Simon Keyes will explore what "good disagreement" looks like and how we might improve public deliberation of divisive issues.
