    Lisa Nandy on a potential Labour government's approach to international development
    On this special episode of UKICE (I Tell), we have a live recording of our latest Unlocked event with Lisa Nandy MP, Shadow Secretary of State for International Development, which took place on 15 May. One of the few northern MPs to retain her seat as Labour’s Red Wall crumbled in 2019, she argued that the party needed to “change or die” when she stood to be leader. She has since outlined how Britain could rethink its domestic and global agenda for the modern age in her book All In. With geopolitics increasingly affecting domestic politics, her work as Shadow Minister for International Development is helping to shape Labour’s new message. Lisa Nandy joined Professor Anand Menon to reflect on her political career, how Britain can heal the post-Brexit divisions and how a potential Labour Government would differ from the Conservatives in its approach to international development.
