If you want to get a flavour of the proceedings at the Political Studies Association conference on its opening day, then the Storify collation below will bring you some of the images, tweets and sounds of the day.
Particular highlights included:
- the Opening Plenary with David Blunkett, Peter Riddell and Matthew Flinders;
- and the late afternoon Northern Ireland Roundtable in which Malachi O’Doherty, Conall McDevitt and Peter Weir agreed on many things, while Katy Hayward was questioning, and Lord Paul Bew provided balance and historical background; [available to listen in three audio parts]
- as well as the Media, Politics & Influence papers; and
- Peter Emerson’s decision-making voting procedures book launch.
