A recording of our Dialogue & Debate webinar, streamed live on Wednesday 7 April 2021 from 11am, exploring the social cohesion implications of declining public trust in government, the media and between communities.

This hour-long, interactive discussion was hosted by our Chief Executive, Dr Ed Newell, with guest panellists, a live poll and audience Q&A. Our three guest speakers were:

  • Professor Will Jennings - Professor of Political Science and Public Policy at the University of Southampton and Principal Investigator of the ESRC-funded 'TrustGov' project
  • Will Moy - Chief Executive of Full Fact, the UK’s independent fact checking charity
  • Dr Nikki Soo - Social researcher at Ipsos MORI and Honorary Research Associate at the Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Culture

This webinar is part of our regular series of Dialogue & Debate webinars, which explore pressing issues of social cohesion in the UK with guest speakers from a range of sectors and perspectives. Our webinars are live-streamed on Zoom, with an audience Q&A, on the first Wednesday of each month, at 11.00am. Recordings are shared afterwards, to access on demand.
