As a part of Parliament Week 2017 and Interfaith Week 2017, the Forum for International Relations Development (FIRD) and School of Economics and Law (SOEL) organised a great trip to the Houses of Parliament. The students and staff interacted in an informative Q&A session with Mike Freer MP followed by a tour of the historic Palace of Westminster. Students relished the opportunity to visit such a historic building and having the chance to witness first hand the start of the debate on Brexit in the House of Commons, sitting in on the debate and listening to it live. This was an important step in creating cross party dialogue and in engaging youth in politics. Students will be writing up a report on their visit and will be available soon. Students were joined by local activists, lecturers, educationists, researchers and others.
At a seminar arranged by Forum for International Relations Development (FIRD) and School of Economics and Law (SOEL), titled "Inspiring Youth Through Education" Lord Nazir Ahmed of Rotheram (Vice Chairman, All Party Parliamentary Group on Entrepreneurship) and Toaha Qureshi MBE urged the youth to continue their hard work and be entrepreneurial to be successful in the world.
