Warwick PPE Graduate Receives Student Social Mobility Award

Warwick PPE graduate Vikram Khosla received an upReach Ten award at the 2020/21 Student Social Mobility Awards.

The upReach Ten are the ten students across the whole of the UK who, in the opinion of the judges, were most likely to achieve outstanding personal or career success.

“It was a complete surprise to me! I’d been shortlisted for two of the other awards which I didn’t win on the day. Then at the end they announced the upReach Ten awards and I was delighted to receive this one as it encapsulates both my volunteering and mentoring work and my commitment to doing well in my own career.”

Congratulations to Vikram!

Expert Comment: First Bank of England climate change stress test for lenders and insurers

Dr John H Morris, Teaching Fellow in International Political Economy, Department of Politics and International Studies:

"The Bank of England climate stress test is being undertaken now to provide a better understanding of the financial exposures of participants and the financial system to climate-related risks to financial stability. As such it foregrounds the Bank of England’s commitment to - and desire to be a leading figure of – the emerging consensus that central banks have a role to play in the transition to low carbon economies. This is something that Paul Langley and I have called “central banks as climate governors of last resort."
