Senedd at night

The Wales Governance Centre is a Cardiff University research centre undertaking innovative research into all aspects of the law, politics, government and political economy of Wales, as well as the wider UK and, European contexts of territorial governance – particularly following the Brexit vote. We aim to facilitate and encourage informed public debate of key developments in Welsh governance not only through our research, but also through events and postgraduate teaching. The Centre is sponsored and supported by Cardiff University’s School of Law and Politics, while also collaborating with scholars from across the University. The WGC enjoys formal ties with both WISERD and the Institute of Welsh Affairs while also maintaining close cooperative relationships with colleagues in other institutions across Wales, the UK, Europe and beyond.
