Event description

Description


Drawing on a two-year ESRC funded study of parliamentary candidates standing in 2015, this event shares research and insights into key questions around selection, campaigning, election and representation in Britain. Who are our parliamentary candidates? What motivates them to stand? How much does it cost to run? Are they representative of the constituents they serve?

  • Introduction, overview and key findings – Professor Rosie Campbell

  • Research insights from team members

  • Panel discussion - The health of representative democracy in Britain - Phil Cowley (Queen Mary), Ruth Fox (Hansard Society), Robert Hayward (Conservative Party)

The Representative Audit of Britain is funded by the Economic Social and Research Council. The research team includes academics across eight British universities:

Professor Rosie Campbell (Birkbeck), Dr Jennifer Hudson (UCL), Dr Wolfgang Rüdig (Strathclyde), Dr Chrysa Lamprinakou (Birkbeck), Dr Sofia Collignon Delmar (Strathclyde), Dr Javier Sajuria (Newcastle), Professor Sarah Childs (Bristol), Dr Maria Sobolewska (Manchester), Dr Caitlin Milazzo (Nottingham), Dr Peter Allen (Queen Mary), Professor Joni Lovenduksi (Birkbeck), Agnes Magyar (UCL) and Evangelina Moisi (UCL)
