    Plenary: Unpacking lived experience leadership

    In this session, we discuss the meaning of 'lived experience' within different contexts, and in relation to themes of representation, accountability, leadership, and solidarity. Speakers will examine the principles and complexities of meaningful engagement and leadership of people with first-hand experience of a particular issue, as well as the ethical, political and practical dimensions of doing so.
