Festival of Politics

SPS academics will be taking part in this year's Festival of Politics held at the Scottish Parliament.

On 14 August, Professor Nicola McEwen, Associate Director, Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Scottish Centre on Constitutional Change, and Dr Jan Eichhorn, Chancellor’s Fellow in Social Policy, will serve as panellists for The Democratic Challenge, where they will discuss the importance of voting and the possibilities of a younger generation driving the democratic process.

Dr Jan Eichhorn said of the event:

“Being able to speak at events such as the Festival of Politics allows us to engage in conversations about our research with more people and learn ourselves from the experiences of different people and practitioners. In particular our cooperation with teachers and school students has been instructive in our work and something that enriches our ability to produce useful outputs.”
