Uncertain Futures: Charities and the State in the UK and Japan

24 November 2011, London

The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation’s 2011 seminar series has explored the challenges for public policy in the UK and Japan arising from fiscal deficits and spending cuts. Individual seminars have focused upon such topics as social security, work and pensions, education and healthcare provision, climate and energy policy, and support for the arts. In this final seminar of the series, Uncertain Futures: Charities and the State in the UK and Japan, our speakers will consider what the State can and can’t provide and the role of the charity sector in uncertain times. The concluding discussion, involving speakers and audience members who have contributed to the series throughout the year, should generate a lively and interesting debate on this important theme.


This event is supported by Japan Airlines.
