Colleagues from the Warwick Policy Lab, which is based at Warwick in London, are working with Members of Parliament, experts and practitioners on a cross-party parliamentary Commission on Youth Violence. The Commission was launched in 2017 to examine the root causes of youth violence in England, Scotland and Wales. It is chaired by Lewisham MP Vicky Foxcroft and other Commissioners include Chuka Umunna (Labour), Norman Lamb (Liberal Democrat) and James Cleverly (Conservative).
Organised by the students of The Royal Grammar School (RGS), Guildford, the RGS Scholarship Conference addressed the concept of thought through the rationale of neuroscience, the development of computational theory through thinking machines, and a philosophical insight into human individuality and consciousness.
On Tuesday 23 January, Warwick in London hosted an exciting and controversial event on caste discrimination in the UK. The event included a documentary screening of Caste Aside, which looks at the contentious fight to legislate on caste in the UK. The screening was followed by an extremely lively discussion which included panel members, Anil Bhanot, Meena Dhandra and Sat Pal Muman from opposing sides of the argument and an audience Q&A which was heated at times but managed by expert chair, Warwick in London’s Siobhan Benita.
