Renewal is a quarterly journal of politics and ideas, committed to exploring and expanding the emancipatory potential of social democracy, which has always been a complex and contested political tradition. Renewal offers a space in which its historic purposes – the expansion of equality, democratic governance, and social freedoms – can be debated, advanced and applied to contemporary politics.
