The Local Democracy Week 2013 Challenge
As part of this year's European Local Democracy Week, Portsmouth City Council, University of Portsmouth and the Political Studies Association (PSA) are running a challenge exercise to consider voting and electoral turnout. The event will seek to identify current barriers to voting, why turnout at all-level elections is falling and how we could address some of these problems through real-life examples and real-time solutions.
Guest Speaker: Dr James Sloam, Co-Director of Centre for European Politics, Department of Politics and International Relations, Royal Holloway (University of London).
