Full event details

Sessions include:

Devolution in Wales (Unit 1: government, policies and the public service)
In Scotland’s recent referendum, 16 and 17 year-olds played a significant role, with many voting YES to independence. Debate the impact that elections and the electoral system have, the effect of further devolution in Wales and whether it matters how many levels of government there are.

Citizenship, diversity and public services (Unit 3)
Debate whether fairness means that we should all be treated in the same way, or whether it’s possible to treat people differently and still be fair. Explore examples of fairness in policing, education, health and welfare reform to think about the impact of policies on different groups.

Extended research in public services (Unit 7)
Explore examples of high-quality research and how it affects the delivery of services. Develop the skills needed to design and independently carry out an in-depth research project related to public services.

Piracy and Hijacking - a Global Perspective 
Piracy and hijacking are emergencies which also have a significant impact on international trade and on the governments and law enforcement agencies whose role it is to prevent these crimes. 2020 has seen a dramatic increase in the number of cases of piracy, leading to a view that the economic effects of covid-19 on developing countries is contributing to the growth of this activity. This session will look at the legal and political consequences for states, at historical examples of hijacking and piracy and the international implications of this criminal activity. Finally, it will focus on the international treaties which govern the fight against piracy and hijacking. This session is led by an expert with experience in the Royal Navy of tackling maritime piracy.

Equality: Who is it for?
This interactive taster session on Equality and Diversity is designed to tackle head-on some of the confusion, contractions and misunderstanding associated with an increasing complex equality agenda. In it, we will explore through debate and discussion, the risk we face in an unequal society, whether equality policy is relevant to us on a personal level and what on earth ‘equality’ means anyway. The session will be Illustrated with case studies on discrimination against young people, child sexual exploitation and Black Lives Matters. Let’s get talking!
