As online party conference season is about to get underway in the UK: what role do conferences play today?

Duncan Hall

It is hard to imagine much excitement and drama at virtual party conferences this Autumn. But has there been very much in the real events in recent years?

This Guardian article considers the importance of conferences, whether they need to change, and whether an online version is part of the answer. Are conferences an opportunity for participation? Part of an effective internal party democracy? Just about party funding? Just media opportunities?
