ESRC Festival of Social Science 2014: 1 - 8 November

Thinking Futures

Thinking Futures is an eleven day long Festival from the 1 - 11 November to share and celebrate research from the University of Bristol's Faculty of Social Sciences and Law. The programme comprises a wide variety of events for the general public, schools, policy-makers and third sector organisations, held in Bristol.  Thanks to a great response from our researchers we have made the festival even longer this year.

Engage with our researchers and see how the social sciences inform key debates and advances in policy and practice for governments, education, charities, health services, legal systems, and public services around the globe.
