Senedd 2021: Looking Back and Looking Ahead

Join our discussion as we look at the 2021 Senedd election in retrospective, hearing from people representing a range of voices across Wales.

We will look at the implications of the Covid-19 pandemic on the results, the impact of young people being given the right to vote for the first time and whether the electoral landscape of Wales has shifted in the wake of the results.

Our panel will discuss the election campaigns and share their opinions of the outcomes, including what drove voters to make the decisions they did.

We will also discuss the implications of the result for policy-makers in Wales over the next Senedd term, examining where the newly-elected Welsh Parliament might lead Wales over the next few years.

The event will be chaired by Auriol Miller, Director of the IWA, who will be joined by:

  • Laura McAllister, Professor of Public Policy, Cardiff University
  • Rocio Cifuentes, CEO, Ethnic Minorities and Youth Support Team Wales (EYST)
  • Andy Regan, Policy & External Affairs Manager, IWA

This is an hour long panel discussion on Zoom and attendees will be able to engage in the conversation and ask questions via the live chat.
