Two Westminster students from the Politics and International Relations BA Honours course have been interviewed at the University of Westminster by Sveriges, one of the main Swedish national radio channels, regarding the General Election.

Morgan Fargo and Aidan Brewis, studying Politics and International Relations at the University of Westminster, were selected to be interviewed by the Swedish radio, Sveriges, regarding their thoughts on the potential results of the General Election and its consequences.

The two students particularly stressed the importance of voting for young people in order to get their voices heard and to help shape the future.

Dr Frands Pedersen, Senior Lecturer in International Relations and Convener of the Political Studies Association's Nordic Politics Group, was involved in arranging the interview. He commented: “Students defended lucidly their divergent views on UK politics, and economic and social policy, to their Swedish listeners. They strongly agreed in their opposition to Brexit and on the need for young people to become more engaged in politics, because the future is theirs! The Department of Politics and International Relations share and fully endorse this view.”
