The University of Liverpool has hosted the second North-West Doctoral Training Centre (NWDTC) Conference.
Politics PhD students from Liverpool were joined by students from Lancaster and Manchester universities at the NWDTC Politics Pathway Conference 2013.
The Conference consists of panel debates on a wide range of topics including migration, sectarianism, morality and ethics, and institutional change. It also involves roundtables on aspects of the PhD process.
The panel discussions in Liverpool included the issues of sectarianism in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Liverpool, electoral reform, health policy in the EU and the construction of Muslim communities in the UK.
Commenting on the event Professor of Politics at the University of Liverpool Jon Tonge, said: “There are very few conferences aimed exclusively at PGR level so it’s great to be involved in the NWDTC which brings together some of the finest student minds in the region.
“The interchange of ideas across universities is very effective, and many of the students who get involved have found the research training and advice invaluable. At this event, students were given information about how to get a thesis published as a book or in journals.”
The inaugural conference took place at the University of Manchester last year and is set to take place on a bi-annual basis going forwards.
