The relative success of the Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn campaigns have put left politics back on the political map. This panel will seek to explore the role that the labour movement played in the Sanders and Corbyn campaigns and consider whether similar political campaigns have the potential to contribute to a renewed and strengthened labour movement.

This event is co-organized by the Global Labour Research Centre (York University), the Centre for Social Justice, and the Socialist Project.
