The Second Severn crossing

Due to the threat of industrial action by the University and College Union (UCU) on this date we have decided to cancel this event.

The Wales Institute for Social and Economic Research, Data and Methods (WISERD), the Institute of Welsh Affairs (IWA) and the Learned Society of Wales invite you to an evening of debate and networking to celebrate Wales Week in London.


Introduction: Sir Emyr Jones Parry – President, Learned Society of Wales

A panel will share thoughts and provoke a conversation on:

  • The future economy of Wales – Professor Gerald Holtham, Cardiff Metropolitan University
  • Wales: a global nation – Dr Elin Royles, WISERD, Aberystwyth University
  • Civil society in Wales – Professor Paul Chaney, WISERD, Cardiff University
  • Policy, politics and devolution – Auriol Miller, Director, IWA

Closing Remarks – Professor Ian Rees Jones – Director, WISERD

After the discussion we hope you will join us for drinks, canapés and networking.

This event has been cancelled. If you have any enquiries please contact WISERD’s Events Officer, Jane Graves, at
