Modern Studies Conference
The European Parliament Information Office in Edinburgh participated on 5 November 2011 in the Modern Studies Conference in Stirling. Organised annually by the Modern Studies Association, the conference gathered together more than 150 Modern Studies teachers from Scottish secondary schools. Our Office distributed the European Parliament educational resources and answered questions from teachers who visited our stand between various seminar sessions. The EP materials turned out to be very popular with the participants. Modern studies, the subject unique to the Scottish curriculum, deals with the social, political and economic aspects of issues at local, national and international level.
