Wales Studies is the intellectual exploration, explanation and understanding of all things relating to Wales and its relations with the wider world.

… to project an image of contemporary Wales to an international audience … we need a stronger awareness of what makes the nation distinct. Wales’s qualities include its culture, values, history, bilingualism, the importance of community and cynefin, political and social traditions, diversity and much more. They are what epitomise the nation.

These are not backward-looking clichés; they are assets which set Wales apart.

Knowing and appreciating who we are is vital for our self- awareness and self-confidence
