ATLE L. WOLD 

ELECTED NEW BPS LEADER

The ninth Annual General Meeting of the BPS was held on Tuesday 26. August 2014. At this meeting, Atle L. Wold was elected new leader of the BPS for a two-year period.

- I look forward to taking on this task, a smiling Wold said.



Wold is an Associate Professor at the Department of Literature, Area Studies and European Languages at the University of Oslo, where he is in charge of British area studies. He holds a Ph.D. in British History from the University of Edinburgh (2003), and is particularly interested in British history in the period 1688-1832, devolution and constitutional reform.

In 2006, he was one of the co-founders of BPS. He has served as a board member since then.

THE WILSON YEARS

In 1964, Harold Wilson and the Labour Party entered government after thirteen years in opposition. The election was a momentous one, seeing a grammar school prime minister succeed a Lord (Alec Douglas Home) against the backdrop of the swinging sixties and the perception of a society where education and mobility would trump class.

In the summer issue of British Politics Review, we discuss the paradoxes, achievements and shortcomings of the Wilson government on its 50th anniversary.

In the autumn issue of British Politics Review, we cast our glance towards Wales and ask where devolution stands fifteen years after the creation of the Welsh Assembly. We will also consider how the Scottish debate has fed into the broader discussion about devolution in Wales and across the UK.
