Reverse ‘Question Time’ event gives policymakers chance to quiz academics

On 7th November 2018, University of Bristol held its second Policymakers’ Question Time event, with an audience of policymakers and academics, aiming to create new connections and creating closer cooperation between research and policy.

Our director Sado Jirde contributed as a panelist at a 3-strong panel that ask questions of four speakers, whose diverse subject areas reflected the breadth and complexity of policymakers’ roles.  Research and policy consultation are an important pillar of BSWN’s work in the region to challenge race and economic inequality, and we were delighted to have the opportunity to contribute to the discussion and meet the academics that contribute to our knowledge base.
