WELCOME TO WARWICK CONGRESS
26th-27th January 2019
Warwick Congress is an entirely student run initiative that aims to bridge the gap between Finance, Economics, Politics and Law. Our goal is to unite these disciplines through talks and seminars given by leading academics and industry professionals in their relevant field.
Our main event of the year is our conference, to be held on 26th-27th January 2019. It will focus on innovation, centring around two subtopics: the way social media affects politics and policy, as well as the potential shift in global trade towards protectionism.
Previous speakers include…
BBC News Editor
Head of Societe Generale Private Banking
Former Vice President of the European Parliament
Leader of the Liberal Democrats
Brian Klaas, former advisor to the Democratic party (US)
Siobhan Benita, Co-Director of the Warwick Policy Lab
What makes Warwick Congress different is its ability to mobilise around the big issues of the day, create a forum for us to debate these issues, and bring some very different opinions and very different perspectives on how to crack some of the major issues of our time
