Parish Announcements23 February 2016
A couple of things that I thought at least some Elections in Wales readers might be interested in.
First, there will be an Election 2016 Briefing Seminar on the morning of 22nd March, at the Pierhead Building here in Cardiff Bay. To quote from the advert:
“The seminar will take an in-depth look at the electoral landscape in Wales in 2016. The event will include a presentation from Professor Roger Scully who will explore the parties’ prospects for the forthcoming election. Those attending the seminar will also be the first people to hear results from the 2016 Welsh Election Study: we will be releasing new data at the seminar on the standing of the parties and on the impact of the parties’ early campaigning efforts.
This presentation will be followed by a Question and Answer session with Professors Roger Scully and Richard Wyn Jones, chaired by BBC Cymru Wales journalist Bethan Rhys Roberts.”
Attendance is free, and breakfast is provided! To register, see here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/election-2016-wales-governance-centre-breakast-seminar-tickets-22094974664
Second, along with colleagues at the University of Edinburgh, we at Cardiff University’s Wales Governance Centre will be teaching an open, online course about the devolved elections. The course is free, and anyone can sign up before the start date of 18th April.
