SPEAKER SERIES

DISCOVER OUR SPEAKER SERIES

The PPE Society is renowned at the University for the quality and range of its speaker events. The PPE Speaker Series has been able to attract some of the most prominent figures in the political and economic arena, such as Evan Davis, and Shami Chakrabartri and Jacob Rees-Mogg. 
Our talks often focus on current political or economic issues, but in the same way that the PPE course delves into a much broader range of social issues, our Speaker Series hosts talks on an expansive range of topics. For the academic year of 2019-2020, the subjects of our talks varied from centrist political views, trade unionism and the "GovTech", role of technology in politics.
We pride ourselves on the diversity of our Speaker Series. In accordance with our values of freedom of speech, we invite speakers from across the political spectrum, so that our thoughts can be challenged and we can broaden our horizons.
To keep up to date with our speaker series just like us on Facebook or check our 'What's On' page.
