LOUISA MCGEEHAN: Child poverty is not inevitable. To prevent it, a first priority for government must be reinvesting in children.
STEPHEN TIMMS MP: The hardship inflicted by universal credit does not arise from its basic principles. Labour can turn this new system into a tool for fighting poverty.
ANJUM KLAIR AND KATE BELL: Social security needs to do less of the heavy lifting to tackle in-work poverty.
RUTH LISTER: Our social security system gets the balance wrong between means-testing, universalism and contribution. Could basic income provide a way forward?
MARSHA DE CORDOVA MP: We must transform our social security system into one which enables disabled people to participate fully and equally in society.
RAJI HUNJAN AND MARC FRANCIS: Labour must remember the principled stand George Lansbury and his colleagues made during the Poplar rates rebellion and argue for the renationalisation of our social security system.
