Hot Politics Lab Meetings

Archive

Here you can find the materials of our weekly lab meetings. Since our move online in March 2020, we’ve been recording these meetings. You can find video and audio-recodings below.

We did not record the pre-corona talks. Here we only have powerpoints.

Each week the Hot Politics Lab invites a guest speaker to give a brief talk on a timely topic, followed by a Q&A. Our meetings are open to the public, and you can join each Friday at 3pm (CET) via Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/839478901
