Panellists will each give a brief presentation to be followed by a debate and discussion.

The Festival of Social Science offers a fascinating insight into some of the country's leading social science research and how it influences our social, economic and political lives - both now and in the future. This free event is a fantastic opportunity to discuss the real world impact of research in addressing global grand challenges and to shape the discussion of how we address them.
