Event Details

Every year at the University of Bedfordshire we aim to assemble a range of diverse and high-profile speakers for our Vice Chancellor’s Public Policy Lecture Series, and 2018 is no exception.

 

The University of Bedfordshire is pleased to host David Aaronovitch, a highly regarded Times columnist, to deliver a Public Policy Lecture on Thursday 1st March.  

 

‘Post-truth’ society provides the ideal conditions for outlandish theories to flourish. But are some people more susceptible to conspiracy theories? With traditionally trusted sources of information routinely undermined, and fake news and conspiracy theories so easily shared via the Internet David’s lecture will address the causes such as a lack of trust in democracy that leads to this phenomenon.

 

David Aaronovitch is a columnist at The Times who was once president of the National Union of Students and a communist but is now a radical moderate. David is also a broadcaster and author.

 

Vice Chancellor’s Public Policy Lectures are designed to improve the public understanding of politics, to foster debate on current affairs and to encourage our students to consider taking an active role in politics in their future lives through giving them access to the insights of current and former public servants who are world-class experts in their field.

 

We look forward to seeing you there.
