UK Parliament Week is an annual festival that engages people from across the UK with Parliament, explores what it means to them and empowers them to get involved.
UK Parliament Week 2018
Across the country between the 12 and 18 November, people will be celebrating and learning about the UK Parliament. This year the School of Social Sciences’ Politics and International Relations department, alongside Nottingham Civic Exchange are joining them. Throughout the week we’ll be hosting a series of events and activities to showcase the value of engagement with politics for our students and the public.
Throughout the week we have opportunities for students and members of the public to work with NTU’s academics and partners. If you aren’t a student we’d still like you to come along to NTU and get involved. Check out the event listings below to see what you can get involved in over the week.
Parliament Week: An Overview
A review of when students, staff and members of the public came together at NTU to explore how Parliament can 'engage, explore and empower' during Parliament Week 2018.
The Politics of Misogyny
Dr Kat Krulisova outlines why NTU is hosting a public debate about the criminalisation of misogyny in Nottingham with three focal advocates. Join us to explore why they support the work done and hear about how they think it should progress.
Life after Brexit:
We've been told that the Brexit Referendum will allow us to 'take back control'. We want to work with young people to understand what that looks like for you and how we can ensure that your voice is heard to influence the future of democracy, post Brexit. This event is held during Parliament Week and aims to work with young people to develop answers to these questions.
