Who Will Win in 2015?
The May 2015 General Election shaping up to be the most unpredictable in decades. From the SNP in Scotland to UKIP’s assault on Labour and Conservative heartlands and the Green insurgency, this election is full of uncertainties. This event will try to make sense of a contest even pollsters are seeing as too close to call.
Birkbeck staff from the Politics Department will each give a five minute pitch and bite size assessment on a different aspect of the election. Can we piece together who will win?
Staff will look at a variety of topics including
• What Will be the UKIP Effect?
• How Will the Greens Do?
• Will Algorithms Win the election?
• Who is the Average Voter (it isn’t a man)?
Order of Speakers: Rosie Campbell, Diana Coole, Jason Edwards, Ben Worthy and Eric Kaufman
Chair: Tony Wright
