From 1-7 November, Aberystwyth University will host The Pursuit of Peace, this year’s Festival of Research.

As part of the Festival programme, the Centre for Welsh Politics and Society and Wales Institute of Social and Economic Research and Data have organised the following discussion event:

Let’s avoid the jargon and just talk to each other. Join community leaders and Aberystwyth University researchers in conversation reflecting on initiatives to overcome division and polarisation in communities and counter extremism. How can this apply to Mid Wales? Let’s share what works and what doesn’t work. Hear from:

James Austin – Jo Cox Foundation, Great Get Together Coordinator

Sarah Bowen – Community Cohesion Officer for Mid & South West Wales

Nick Olsen – Community Cohesion Coordinator for Cardiff

In conversation with Professor Michael Woods

Tickets are free and everyone is welcome.
