TWS Ideas opens intellectual debate about broad areas of policy and current affairs – building on shared interests and experiences. It translates our opportunities for receiving ideas at Cambridge – whether through academic discussions, talks, debates or the news – into active expression.

It is open to anyone – not just TWS members – and will be focused around hour long meetings about a relevant topic. These will be advertised in advanced on the website – which will provide experts of reading and audio-visual material, as well as pointing to related talks in Cambridge for those who are particularly interested.

As well as being a crucible for intellectual discussion in its own right, the link with TWS also creates the potential to transform ideas into constructive engagement. Discussion at TWS Ideas will be recorded, and may generate policy reports or meetings with high-profile guests.
