A recording from the Festival of Politics session titled "Youthquake".
“Youthquake,” was the Oxford Dictionary word of 2017. From youth campaigners on Brexit, Scottish Independence and Jeremy Corbyn’s rise – young people appear more politically engaged than ever. Join chair Laura Hood, Politics Editor, The Conversation, and panellists Dr. Benjamin Bowman, Manchester Centre for Youth Studies, Manchester Metropolitan University; Zanib Ahmad MSYP; Professor Paul Whiteley, Professor of Government, University of Essex and British Academy Fellow; and Josh Kennedy MSYP, to discuss whether the youthquake really can transform the political landscape.
In partnership with British Academy, The Conversation and the Scottish Youth Parliament.
