WELCOME TO WARWICK CONGRESS
9th-11th Februrary 2018
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 9th-11th February 2018. 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.
This year’s speakers include…

What do others think of Warwick Congress?
“Warwick Congress is an exciting up and coming group of bright minds that are engaged in understanding and improving the world […] this is precisely the sort of thing that helps ensure that young people are not idle passengers of change but act instead as agents of it.“ Brian Klaas, former advisor to the Democratic party (US)
“I think Warwick Congress is fantastic, I think the way that you are bringing together people from different disciplines creates really interesting discussion”
Siobhan Benita, Co-Director of the Warwick Policy Lab at the University of Warwick
“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”
Noel Gordon, Chairman of NHS Digital
