WISERD Wales & Recession Seminar Series
March – December 2014
2008 marked the beginning of the deepest and longest recession of modern times. While its causes are to be found in centres of economic and political gravity beyond Wales, its effects on the Welsh economy and on the lives of the people of Wales have been profound and far reaching.
This seminar series aims to examine the impact of the recession on social and economic life in Wales; and to take stock of the policy responses in Wales in the context of a Westminster government committed to austerity measures.
Health and Well-being POSTPONED
Eva Elliott and Gareth Williams
This seminar will focus on the effects of the recession in Wales on well-being and health.

This summit will mainly discuss existing and possible future labour market interventions in response to large-scale job losses across traditional industries (deindustrialization) in Wales, with a particular focus on the North West Wales labour market.
This event is an introductory hands-on session aimed at those in the voluntary sector with an interest in either using or doing research.
As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences 2015 we will demonstrate the new version of the WISERD Data Portal (WDP) with the participation of an exemplar Civil Society organisation, focussing on how the Portal can be used by third sector organisations for Civil Society research.
