Amidst the lengthy political turmoil of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, the ability of elected political institutions in Britain to represented Britons is coming under increasing scrutiny. This module uses a combination of research informaed qualitative and quantitative techniques to examine trends in political representation in the UK at the local, devolved and national levels and explores policy initiatives aiming to improve the quality of political representation. The module is suitable for non-specialist students and those on interdisciplinary pathways. It does not have pre-requisites and is an excellent fit for students interested in representation and British politics.
