Students debate current affairs at Students' Question Time eventWednesday 31 Jan 2018
On 22 January 2018 we held our annual Students’ Question Time event which follows on from our main Question Time held in October when we invite politicians and policy makers to discuss topical issues. The panel members were students from Economics, PPE, Politics, Economic and History, with the debate being moderated by Chair Dr Claudia Rei.
The topics tackled by our student panelists ranged from whether social media was the root cause for intolerance to other cultures and religions, the rise of populism on both sides of the Atlantic and its effect on neo-liberal world order and whether the UK government should withdraw Trump's invitation for a state visit.
First year Economics student Sugheson Nagarajan commented on his experience of being a panel member:
