Warwick Economics Summit is driven by its central, motivating slogan: ‘Join the Debate’.

In this spirit of promoting honest, inquisitive, and informed discussion - among the University of Warwick populus and far, far beyond - WES Blog was founded as the accompanying journalistic endeavour to Warwick Economics Summit, in 2017, by its Press and Communications team.

To this day, the WES Press and Communications team - today run by Ingrid Bahnemann and Natalia Tronina, and made-up exclusively of engaged students at the University of Warwick - remains a forum for quality, well-researched economic and related student journalism. In fact, the blog may present the most compelling opportunity for the WES audience to remain immersed in thought-provoking discussion year-round - at our Summit and beyond.

This is why we keep the debate open - for it is not only the communication-savvy team behind WES that pens our topical content. The blog is home to great guest submissions from the Summit’s global network of Ambassadors, Representatives, Delegates and external audience members. The richness of their international perspectives drives two of our content streams: Deep Dive and Global View, which together offer insights into breaking and underreported stories of today and tomorrow.

Through another of our curated content streams, We Respond, WES Blog asserts its voice in professional and dialectic journalistic discourse by offering compelling response pieces. The Summit revolves of course around the world-class line-up of events and speeches from thought-leaders in both academia and industry hosted at and by Warwick Economics Summit on an annual basis. From transcripts to summaries to exclusive interviews, the truly formative student experience of WES is incomplete without a trip to the WES Blog.
