Towards a Better Student Democracy

There is currently a lack of engagement with the student motion system (SMS) at the

through increasing student participation our proposals will improve the democratic legitimacy of the SMS and mean the SMS is better suited to achieving policy outcomes that benefit the
student population at large.
