                          Programme
Dear Colleague

Welcome to the Inaugural Conference of the Centre for Research in Political Psychology (CResPP) at Queen‟s University Belfast!

In this Programme we have included information about both its scientific content and the logistical aspects of the conference to make your
participation in the meeting as easy as possible. We have also included some general information to make your stay in Belfast enjoyable. Do contact
one of the local team if you have any further queries. The conference team will all be wearing blue name badges so should be easily recognisable.

Let me start with giving some information about how to find your way around the various conference venues. The Registration Desk will be located in
Room OG.533 on the ground floor (near the Malone Road Entrance) of the David Keir Building (DKB). The posters will also be displayed in Room
OG.533 where we will have coffee and lunches.

The oral presentations will take place in Rooms 0G.336 and 0G.339 on the ground floor of the DKB. On Thursday morning there will be three parallel
sessions; the third session will take place in OG.512 in the DKB. The plenary sessions (keynote addresses and a round table discussion) will take
place in Lecture Theatre LG 111 in the DKB. The public debate on Climate Change will be held in the Canada Room in the Lanyon Building (the
main University site) in the evening of Wednesday 14 April 2010. This will be preceded by a wine reception sponsored by the Northern Ireland British
Psychological Society Branch (NIBPS). The reception will take place in the Chamber Council adjacent to the Canada Room.

The maps in the following pages show where these rooms are located. You can also follow the signs put on the walls of the DKB pointing to the
various conference presentation venues.

For those who have booked to join us for the Conference Dinner, this will be held in Ten Square, a hotel on 10 Donegall Square South, Belfast,
BT1 5JD.

For those who have chosen to go on the Political Education Tour, the coach will be waiting for us outside the entrance of the DKB on Malone
Road at 3.15 pm on Friday 16 April 2010.

In the last section of the Programme you will find more information about the public debate on Climate Change, directions of how to get to the
Conference Dinner venue and a brief description of the Political Education Tour.

Wishing you an intellectually stimulating meeting and an enjoyable stay in Belfast

Warm Regards

Evanthia Lyons
Director of CResPP

Public Debate

At 6.00 pm on Wednesday 14 April, we will hold a public debate on ‘A Climate of Crisis? A public conversation on what psychology, politics,
religion and technology can contribute to addressing climate change’ This event will be open to everybody, not only to conference participants.

The members of the panel have different disciplinary backgrounds and different professional roles. They will debate how we should react to and
address climate change among themselves and with the audience. Do we as individuals and consumers have to change our behaviours? Do our
politicians have to pass stricter laws? Should we spend more money on the development of green technology? Should we rely more on religious
beliefs and values when making decisions? The debate will be chaired by William Crawley, a BBC presenter. This event is free for everybody.




                                                                                                                                                    13
