Is the US on the Decline?

Thursday 9 February 2017 - Samuel Edgington

A key theme of the recently successful Trump campaign was monopolising upon the concern of American decline. The call to “make America great again” only resonated because it reflected a genuine feeling in the U.S. regarding domestic and international decline; there is a pervading sense that something has been lost. The majority of Americans now […]

Morals & Machines

Thursday 9 February 2017 - Waratchaya Limvipuwat

In 1984, director James Cameron introduced to the world, “The Terminator”. This was a film, set in a dystopian world where society is dominated by artificial intelligence networks. Back when the film was first released, the idea of machines and computers being able to revolt against man’s control was absurd. Today, it does not seem […]

Racing Forward – The Future of Technology and Transport

Thursday 9 February 2017 - David Akinwolemiwa

It would not be at all controversial to claim (As Uber itself does), that Uber is “changing the logistical fabric of cities around the world”. However, a recent employment tribunal ruling is sure to change the logistical fabric of not only their business model, but that of the ‘gig economy’ at large. The gig economy […]

Afterlife – In a Virtual Reality System

Thursday 9 February 2017 - Kimberly Lee

Humans have been on a quest to find immortality since the dawn of time when we grasped the concept that we will all inevitably face death in time to come. It may be possible that this idea of immortality is not far from reality’s reach today. There are already methods out in the market for […]

All Eyes on You – The Snooper’s Charter

Thursday 9 February 2017 - Lauren Counsell

Was Orwell right? Are we now living in a real life 1984? Have we all just kissed goodbye to our privacy without knowing it? Unfortunately, the answer is possibly yes. Big Brother (or various government authorities) may soon be spying on you, if they are not already, or at least saving your personal data. The […]

The International Criminal Court – International No More?

Thursday 9 February 2017 - Aisling Morgan

On 24th November 2016, the 15th Assembly of State Parties of the International Criminal Court (ICC) left the international community worried for the future. Vocal criticisms of the ICC, withdrawals of membership and a changing political sphere do not do well to quell the fear of the existence of the Court. Over the course of […]

An Overview of the Refugee Panel Discussion

Thursday 9 February 2017 - Freya Cassia

It’s a familiar sight. Frightened refugees in overcrowded boats, desperately hoping for a better life in Europe. These images of sinking dinghies in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea should not be commonplace – but they are. In response to the refugee crisis, the UK government has pledged to resettle 20,000 refugees in the UK […]

Crisis in the Mediterranean

Thursday 9 February 2017 - Aisling Morgan

The magnitude of the migrant crisis faced by Europe appears to be unprecedented. With a flow of people coming into Spain from North West Africa, Italy from Libya and Tunisia, and particularly, into Greece from Turkey, it is undoubtedly at crisis point. Every week, news reports surface of yet another boat capsizing, leaving hundreds dead. […]

Common Law and Civil Law – Same Difference or Worlds Apart?

Thursday 9 February 2017 - Eleanor Gill

Cultural differences have always fascinated me. Over the years, summer holidays spent exploring continental Europe have made me aware how many things can differ within a relatively short distance. So perhaps it was to be expected that over the course of my Law with French and French Law degree (which includes a year studying French […]

Will Trump Really Change the World?

Will Trump Really Change the World?

Thursday 9 February 2017 - James Doherty

Donald Trump has long touted himself as the ultimate dealmaker (he even wrote a book entitled “The Art of the Deal”), but how will this self-professed talent affect the world? Trump’s largest obstacle most probably comes in the form of his Russian counterpart, President Vladimir Putin. The US-Russia association is on a pivotal position between […]

A Centre Without a Future?

Thursday 9 February 2017 - Thomas Hughes

Amongst other things, 2016 will be remembered for the passing of so many much-loved celebrities. David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Terry Wogan, Prince, Victoria Wood, Ronnie Corbett…the list goes on. Yet have we also seen the death of something far more significant? This year has potentially seen the demise of the centre ground of British politics, […]

Trump and Brexit

Thursday 9 February 2017 - Rhiannon Jackson

Thursday 9 February 2017 - Rayan Kalfat

Three years after Snowden’s revelations about the NSA, mass surveillance is still doing pretty well. As a matter of fact, after France and Germany, the UK has now adopted a new law on intelligence that will result in the loss of privacy. The protection of private life has taken a new turn. The Internet changed […]

The Fate of Democracy

Thursday 9 February 2017 - Charissa Loh

Through the outcome of the EU referendum and US presidential elections, 2016 has proven to be a year that introduced significant changes to international politics.
