This year's panel will include students from the Departments of Economics, Politics and International Studies and PPE.
I'm a first year EPAIS student who is interested in how politics and economics intertwine and influence each other in the UK. My main hobbies include watching and playing football.
My name is Gerardo and I am a third year economics student. I have always enjoyed debating about economic and political issues and I have a real interest in immigration and its economics implications, which is the topic of my final year dissertation. I'm originally from Madrid, Spain.
As a Third Year Politics student and President of the Warwick Debating Society, I am deeply involved in discussing crucial political issues, from Brexit to Austerity. As an active campaigner in the referendum and other social issues, I take significant interest in issues of political economy and alternative economic thinking. I also enjoy puns, boardgames and ten pin bowling.
I am a second year PAIS student. I've grown up in Denmark and therefore because of our welfare state very interest in social mobility and equalty of opportunity. I have previously been the president of UNICEF's child expert panel and also th internaitonal officer of the Upper Secondary School Student Union in Denmark. In 2016 was in many ways a year which turned politics on its head - I look forward to discuss how we move forward.
I am a first year PPE student and President of the newly established Warwick Marxist Society. My interest in politics and economics has followed me as a representative for Brighton and Hove In UK Youth Parliament, throughout a Leves and now into my degree. In this time it has become obvious to all that the period we are living through is one of tremendous change with soaring debts, dying trade and political instability from the Brazil, China, the RU and of course now the USA. I argue that now is the time for more radical change in order to solve increasingly pressing problems.
