Maurice Glasman is a political theorist, academic, social commentator, and Labour life peer in the House of Lords. He is a senior lecturer in political theory at London Metropolitan University, and Director of its Faith and Citizenship Programme. His academic work has focused on the works and thinking of Karl Polanyi. More widely, Glasman is perhaps best known as a founder of Blue Labour, a term he coined in 2009. “Blue Labour” has argued that Labour should embrace patriotism and a return to community values based on trade unions and voluntary groups, which Glasman claims was evident in early Labour politics but was lost after 1945 with the rise of the welfare state. Glasman is also known for a range of (often controversial) views: he supported Brexit; he is against Jewish settlement on the West Bank.

The title of Lord Glasman’s lecture is ‘On Faith and Citizenship’.
