Government & Politics

Government and Politics explores how Britain is governed and then looks at the alternative political ideologies that have been advocated. We investigate questions of democracy and equality.  We have taken part in video- conferencing sessions to discuss with other students across the world the issue of what makes a society fair? Can growing gaps between rich and poor be justified?  We look at how meritocratic our society and at extreme branches of ideology. “Deep green” ecologism  and radical feminists certainly challenge our assumptions.  We use the debating chamber to develop the skills of making clear arguments and invite MPs and other guests into the department.
