Universities boost economic growth and graduates can earn a high salary premium – but higher education policy is in a mess, Brexit is a threat to many institutions and universities are under political attack. What needs to be done?

The panel, chaired by Andy Westwood (University of Manchester), includes Simon Burgess (University of Bristol), Sandra McNally (London School of Economics), David Willetts (Resolution Foundation) and Gill Wyness (University College London/ London School of Economics).

Bristol Festival of Economics is presented in association with
