Continuing the Debate
The Department of Economics hosted its first Question Time event on campus on Monday 30th September 2013, providing University of Warwick students and staff with the opportunity to engage with politicians, policy makers and academics. It was a huge success, with many demands made for follow-up events.
Therefore, to continue the success of this event and to allow students to debate on some of the excellent topics raised in September and to give their own viewpoints on some of the other submitted questions, the Department of Economics is hosting the Students’ Question Time.
This time, three undergraduate students from the Department are invited to join Professor Abhinay Muthoo on the panel.
Audience registration will close 17th February 2014 and places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
The Students’ Question Time will take place on 18th February 2014, 4.30-6.00pm in Woods-Scawen.
