A salon with Madeleine Bunting

Care work is at the heart of society. Without it, we couldn't survive as a species. Prize-winning author Madeleine Bunting takes a deep dive into the important but invisible world of care, showing how swathes of the care economy remain hidden and undervalued. She was already an authoritative and deeply reflective voice on the crisis of care well ahead of the pandemic. Offering insight and humanity, she asks important questions about the deficit of care in our society.



Madeleine Bunting is an English writer, a prize-winning author of many works of non-fiction, and formerly an editor and columnist at The Guardian newspaper. She is also a regular broadcaster for the BBC. As a columnist she covered a wide range of subjects from religion & faith, to politics, social change and global development, has won several One World media awards for her work on global inequality and development.
