In Conversation with Abena Oppong-Asare

Would you want to be an MP? We welcomed alumna and Labour MP back to campus so our students could ask her what the job is really like.

On Friday 27th January, Kent Politics & IR alumna Abena Oppong-Asare joined us In Conversation with our Head of School Dr Nadine Ansorg. We were honoured to have the opportunity to ask Abena our questions and hear about career pathways, as well as what it’s like to work in politics in the current climate.
