Wales Governance Centre
The Wales Governance Centre was established in 1999 in response to the creation of the National Assembly for Wales and its related devolved institutions to fully engage with the new system of government.
The Centre is a research unit sponsored and supported by the School of Law and Politics. Over the past ten years it had a number of events and contributed to research on devolved Wales.
With the support and commitment of the University and the vision of its director, the Centre has grown to conduct a range of research, events and projects in political, constitutional and policy themes in Wales.
The Centre supports directly registered PhD students, offer postgraduate courses available for full-time or part-time study, and regularly host visiting students and scholars from UK, European and international institutions.
A partnership agreement between the Wales Governance Centre and the Welsh Parliament sees the Centre hold regular public events and lectures at the Pierhead Building in Cardiff Bay. This partnership aims to boost public engagement and participation in active democracy, and also includes the provision of regular training seminars for Members of the Senedd and the institution’s staff.
