Democracy Day at University of Reading, Whiteknights Campus

On Saturday April 25, the School of Politics, Economics and International Relations will be holding an exciting topical event, centred on the upcoming UK elections.

Dominik Zaum, Professor of Governance, Conflict, and Security said: ” It will be a chance for members of the public and the University community alike to engage in a thoughtful discussion about the key issues in the election.

“The day will include participation from representatives of the main parties, analysis of manifesto issues such as healthcare and foreign policy, and the session will close with a question time.

“This event is a fantastic opportunity to have an inclusive discussion, and showcase how as an academic community we can contribute to important topical issues.

“Democracy Day is open to all, and we hope to see a wide audience on the day”.

The event will take place between 1pm-5pm in the Agriculture Building, Whiteknights Campus.
