This talk series is designed to engage some of these contemporary issues, with the talks providing the latest thinking on these topics, delivered by well established academics with a history of engagement on these subjects at national and global levels.
The talks in this series explore controversial issues surrounding law, sociology, criminology and politics in the UK, in Europe, and within the wider global community. The talks ought to serve as a forum to engage young minds with the burning questions of the day.
Aligned to A Level curriculum and undergraduate programmes on offer at Middlesex and elsewhere, this series would be suitable for students who are currently studying, or intend to study: law, sociology, government and/or politics, and English. Our academics will come to your school or college to deliver the talk at a pre-agreed date and time, on a first-come, first-served basis.
