The Octavia Hill Lecture: Tribes

Hay Festival 2019, 

The MP for Tottenham investigates the modern concept of ‘tribes’ and how New Tribalism has pernicious effects on the health of our society. He explores the ways in which we can challenge and neuter New Tribalism, distinguishing the ‘good’ sort of tribalism – the patriotism that is inclusive and open to newcomers, the ethnic or religious pride that celebrates a particular culture or faith tradition rather than denigrates others as inferior, the ‘Spirit of Dunkirk’ that saw ordinary people come together and do extraordinary things – from the harmful tribalism that excludes and divides. Chaired by Justin Albert, Director of National Trust Wales.
