In the last year of Mikes life, he recorded numerous dialogues with many of the prime movers and influencers in public policy during the first two decades of Welsh devolution reflecting especially on Rhodri Morgan's political legacy and the nature of the social democracy with a welsh stripe emerged. at this event, insights from these dialogues will be shared, with opportunity for discussion with some of the Ministers and Assembly Members who were involved. Other contributions will be made by colleagues who worked with Mike in several milestone achievements at Swansea University, including the establishment of international research partnerships and a remarkable relationship between Swansea University and Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton.
