Our passion for increasing access to education and mobilising the collective power and expertise of the federation is central to our ability to transform lives around the world and address the global challenges of the future.

The two main tasks are (i) utilising the Blunkett Archives to write one historically-informed case study around sentencing policy with associated educational and training materials, and (ii) to design and deliver a final one-day seminar on learning lessons from personal political papers. Preparatory work for this will involve drafting briefing materials for workshop participants
