WISERD Wales & Recession Seminar Series

Starts: 20 March 2014
Ends:  11 December 2014

WISERD has launched a seminar series aiming to examine the impact of the recession on social and economic life in Wales; and to take stock of the policy responses in Wales in the context of a Westminster government committed to austerity measures.

2008 marked the beginning of the deepest and longest recession of modern times.  While its causes are to be found in centres of economic and political gravity beyond Wales, its effects on the Welsh economy and on the lives of the people of Wales have been profound and far reaching.

All seminars will take place in the Council Chamber in Main Building at Cardiff University from 5.30pm – 6.30pm.
