Exchange – Issue 4

March 21st 2016

The spring edition of Exchange is out today!

The fourth edition of our exclusive magazine sets the direction for the Fifth Assembly. We invited experts and practitioners from areas including social policy, health and housing to tell us what they think the biggest challenges facing Wales will be in 2020 and how the next Assembly should tackle them.

Victoria Winckler authored this edition’s feature piece, putting forward the five biggest obstacles the Fifth Assembly will encounter by 2020. Her thought-provoking piece highlights the political, environmental and social changes the next cohort of AMs and Welsh Government will have to grapple with.

Also in Exchange, the FSB’s Rachel Bowen writes about the need for Wales to develop a MitteIssue 4 whole coverlstand to have a healthy economy, and John Furlong sets out the  reforms to teachers’ education he would like to see implemented between now and 2020.

Exchange is an exclusive benefit of your Bevan Foundation membership, so please let us know if you have any comments or suggestions.
