Inside Politics

A conversation with Juliana Christianson and Dr Gemma Bird.

Politics is everywhere, it’s local, national, international. It affects everything we do. I chose Liverpool because there is such a nice atmosphere, it’s not huge, you can interact with your lecturers all the time. They are always enthusiastic. When I came to visit, that enthusiasm was contagious. With politics, it’s not just picking up a book, you are constantly learning.
