History & Policy: parliamentary engagement workshop
35 Berkeley Square, Helen Wodehouse Bldg, Room 4.01.
Parliament is a potentially important arena for injecting an historical perspective into present day policy, but what is the best way to do this?
This training workshop will be run by Dr. Andrew Blick, Director, History & Policy, and previously an adviser to the House of Commons Political and Constitutional Reform Committee in its inquiry into the possibility of a written constitution for the UK (2010-15).
Dr. Blick will introduce the work of History & Policy in general, and discuss the various opportunities that exist for parliamentary engagement. He will then focus in particular on select committees, discussing their ways of working and the opportunities they present for academic researchers in general and historians in particular.
The session will encourage interaction from participants to help develop thinking about how their work might influence the deliberations of select committees and in turn the wider policy formation process.
Towards the end of the session Dr Blick will be available for one-to-one discussions.
(A sandwich lunch will be provided).
Please register your intention to attend this workshop by signing up at Eventbrite.
