Blog opens up political debate

Have your say

A NEW Sheffield University blog is aiming to become a centre for in-depth discussions on worldwide political and economic challenges.

The internet page created by the Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute – called SPERI Comment - offers readers the chance to leave comments about the blogs and continue the conversation with a range of academics and guest writers.

It will include studies of real-life explanations, insights and strategies, in response to challenges facing the world, like the British growth crisis, the future of the Eurozone, and the G20 leadership.

The blog will be updated once a week by academics, and also offers the chance for members of the public to have their articles published.
