Ruth Lister, Baroness Lister of Burtersett (born 3 May 1949) is Emeritus Professor of Social Policy at Loughborough University, is a former director of the Child Poverty Action Group and was a member of the National Equality Panel, the Commission on Social Justice and various other commissions. She is a Fellow of the British Academy and has published widely in the areas of gender, poverty and inequality, citizenship and welfare reform.[1]

Ruth Lister was appointed to the House of Lords as a life peer on 31 January 2011 as Baroness Lister of Burtersett of Nottingham in the County of Nottinghamshire (Burtersett being the village her mother originated from).[2] Baroness Lister sits as a member of the Labour Party.[3]

On 1 May 2020, Baroness Lister was appointed by Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer to a panel of three Labour peers (with Larry Whitty and Debbie Wilcox) to conduct an inquiry into the leaked report "The work of the Labour Party’s Governance and Legal Unit in relation to antisemitism, 2014-2019".[4][5]

The Leaked Labour Report Inquiry is headed by Martin Forde QC and is expected to conclude in July 2020 when Forde presents his findings to Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC).[6]
