RES Presents is our series of early evening events on topical issues open to the public. It offers the opportunity to engage in an in-depth informative discussion and provides a platform to show how economics can provide insight into public policy.

Each meeting will feature a panel of speakers plus a chair, with opening remarks from each speaker and then a general discussion and plenty of Q&A.
