Policy focus

Policy is at the heart of what we do at Warwick Think Tank - discussing and exploring critical issues facing both the UK and the globe today. Whether it's our weekly events hosted through a series of on campus and online forums or our termly policy reports we aim to unleash a world of policy for students. We focus on a range of policy sectors from foreign affairs to arts & culture. Find out more about how Warwick Think Tank focuses on policy below.

Warwick Think Tank focuses on a wide array of policy sectors to provide the best possible insight into a range of different areas. There are currently seven different policy sectors that we focus our research on - foreign affairs, healthcare, education, tech and innovation, energy and environment, economy and finance, and justice and human rights. See how we explore these policies below.

With the addition of this new policy area we aim to broaden the events, articles and research we publish at Warwick Think Tank. Allow students greater insight into critical areas of policy.

Policy in action

Over the academic terms we aim to explore the seven policy sectors through a range of events, articles and research. Each term will bring unique focus to policy, as Warwick Think Tank focuses on an over arching theme throughout the ten weeks. Past themes include 'power dynamics and competition' and 'inequality in the 21st century'.

Policy events

Policy unleashed

Warwick Think Tank hosts a range of policy events weekly throughout all the academic terms. These events aim to focus on particular policy issues that we focus on in our policy sectors. Policy events are never the same, allowing students to gain as much insight as possible to the world of policy. Past events have included talks on education, race, and the environment from a wide range of speakers - a Democratic senatorial candidate, former spiritual adviser to President Obama and ESG's.

 

Don't count yourself out! - if you are new or a policy wonk these events are for everyone. Join us at one of our policy focused events every Wednesday. Check our instagram and twitter for weekly updates on what's on and where you can get involved in policy debate and amazing speaker events.

Student research

Policy research

In addition to policy events and the blog, Warwick Think Tank produces its own research. At the beginning of terms one and two we set out to produce seven individual policy reports that each focus on a particular issue defining one of the seven sectors. Over the term seven research teams lead research and build a policy report. These reports are then presented at our two special events that detail the work of each team and launch the individual reports.

Warwick Think Tank research reports are researched, developed, and written over an entire academic term. This ensures each report can take an in-depth look at critical policy and provides their outstanding quality. 

Unique issues

Warwick Think Tank research reports focus on unique issues. They feature niche policy developments, while the authors present their unique fact-based policy recommendations. Each term the research will cover a novel overarching theme, past terms have focused on themes such as 'power dynamics and competition'.
