The Exchange is our flexible events and exhibition space within our hub in the North East Wing, Bush House. It is a space for the transfer of ideas between staff and students, between researchers and the public, across departments and disciplines and between social science & culture.
Large windows on to the Aldwych mean that exhibitions and activities taking place within the space are visible to those passing by outside, engaging the public and drawing them in.
The Exchange allows us to communicate our research and its impact on society in new, creative and exciting ways.

The twenty pictures presented in this exhibition were taken during fieldwork for the PhD thesis Navigating through a plural-legal system. Indigenous women's access to justice in the Ecuadorian Andes. The pictures were taken with a smartphone and a semi-professional camera.
