Interpol Alumni Crisis Game, 3-5 May 2019, Gregynog.

Widely cherished and remembered, the Interpol Crisis Game is perhaps the most vivid experience the students in the Department of International Politics go through. It is simply more than just a game!

In this Centenary year, we will be holding a unique Alumni Crisis Game in the wonderful setting of Gregynog, well-known to generations of students who have taken part in the game during their studies.

This will be a tremendous opportunity to reconnect with the fellow graduates and the Department, relive the memories, have fun and, of course, win!

You can pay to take part here:

The price includes 2 nights accommodation at Gregynog Hall - check in Friday 3rd May, check out on afternoon of Sunday 5th May. All meals included.

1) What have been, generally and/or with a view to your particular area of expertise, the most significant contributions articulated in the Department since 1919?

2) What of this work, and how, will continue to shape the discipline in the century ahead?
