Full event details

Ideal for Criminology, Sociology and Politics students, or courses allied to these areas.

 

Sociology:

What are today's biggest issues, challenges and crises? How do we recognise a public issue or crisis, and how do we define them personally, locally, nationally and globally?

Social Policy:

How is it that we can send a rocket to Mars and produce life-changing technology, but society cannot solve issues like homelessness and poverty? Is life fair, why does inequality exist and what could, or should we do about this?

Criminology:

In London, 80% of crimes are recorded in the most income deprived areas. Why is this? In this session, you will explore different factors that contribute to poverty and deprivation, how these might relate to criminality., and what we can do about it.

Politics:

Politics is about making decisions about who gets what, when and how. These decisions are supported by a budget and affect the whole of the nation's population. In this role-play session you will play the role of different members of the Cabinet including the Home Secretary, Foreign Secretary and the Prime Minister. Will you go for high impact, high-cost policies or something more modest with a reasonable chance of success? Can you convince your peers that your decision is the correct decision? How does this affect our neighbouring countries?

 

Timings: 10am - 2.30pm
