Young people and Brexit: one year on

The Wales Institute for Social and Economic Research, Data and Methods (WISERD) would like to invite you to join us at this free conference which will explore the latest research into young people’s political engagement and participation.

How did young people vote in the General Election?

How did the EU referendum change young people’s political engagement?

And how did it affect relations between generations?

A year on from the EU referendum and just a fortnight after the General Election we’ll share new data and insights on young people’s voting behaviour and political engagement.

The conference will conclude with the screening of short films made with young people in Wales and a roundtable debate with politicians, young people and researchers who will discuss how young people can be better represented in the Brexit process, in light of the General Election results.

The conference will be divided into two parts: the morning sessions will provide a forum in which to share the latest academic research and insights in the fields of youth political engagement and participation including election results from the 8th June; and the afternoon session will focus on debating how young people can be better represented in the Brexit process, in light of the election results, including discussion with young people on how it can be used to stimulate their engagement with electoral politics in future.
