University of South Wales
Wales' largest social science conference took place on 25th and 26th June at the University of South Wales.
This annual conference showcases policy relevant research in Wales and attracts colleagues from academic, policy, public, private and third sectors.
The 2013 conference was the fourth annual WISERD conference, and follows on from three successful conferences, held in Cardiff, Swansea and Bangor Universities. Bringing practitioners, policy makers and social scientists together, WISERD conferences have become established as one of the most important events in the social science calendar.
As part of the WISERD Civil Society Seminar series, Tom Jones OBE presents an insider’s perspective on the role of civil society organizations in policy-making in Wales, the UK and Europe.
As part of the WISERD Centre for Welsh Politics and Society Seminar Series, Dr Taulant Guma from the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences at Aberystwyth University presents emerging findings from the WISERD/Civil Society project on ‘Migrants, Minorities and Engagement in Local Civil Society’.
