Current Affairs : Issues Explored in Depth

Group Convener : Paul Wedgbury
In this group we explore, in depth, issues of current importance that interest members. The expectation is that all members will attend regularly, undertake some prior research and, usually, present brief papers on a particular aspect of the topic. Members will decide the subjects for discussion. Topics have included migration, shifts in world power, nationalism, global warming, free trade, the UK and US elections and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The convener hopes “that as well as learning more about the topic, we would seek to challenge ourselves by exploring alternative ways of understanding contentious issues.” Consequently, some subjects will be controversial. The purpose is to explore them intelligently and with the facts that have been ascertained, and, where there is robust debate, this will be conducted politely, calmly and with respect
