Royal Holloway Department of Politics and International Relations 2013 Conference for Sixth Formers

Posted on 11/11/2013

When: Monday 16 December 2013

Time:  09:30 - 16:00

Title:  ‘Challenges and Opportunities for Britain in the 21st century’

Royal Holloway and The European-Atlantic Movement (TEAM) are delighted to offer this conference for Sixth Form students that will explore the ability of our politicians and democratic institutions to respond to political, economic and social challenges. Students taking related subjects in Key Stage 5, such as Government and Politics, Geography, History and Economics are encouraged to attend, as sessions will span these disciplines. Aimed at enhancing students’ academic achievement, the conference will see guest speakers and academics from Royal Holloway address topics linked to the AS/ A-Level curriculum, including:
  • 'Should Britain stay in the EU?'—Dr Giacomo Benedetto, Lecturer in Politics, Royal Holloway University of London
  • 'Why do we need to boost women's representation in politics, and how might we do it?'—Dr Nicholas Allen, Senior Lecture, PIR, Royal Holloway University of London
  • 'Do the costs of globalisation outweigh the benefits?'—Dr Martyn Bond, Visiting Professor, Royal Holloway Unviversity of London
  • 'Is there a role for the UK in the Middle East?'—Professor Rosemary Hollis, Professor of Middle East Policy studies, City University, London
In addition to enriching their understanding of politics, attendees will be encouraged to discuss and debate the topics, with the support of our team of trained Student Ambassadors. There will also be the opportunity to tour our beautiful Egham campus, and find out more about studying at Royal Holloway.
