Context: This year SOAS Students' Union has undergone a governance review. In this process we've looked at how our existing governance and democracy structures work, if they're effectively benefitting our members, and what others in the sector are doing. Through this review we've identified areas for improvement, and have designed a new governance structure that we believe will address these issues and allow us to work better for you. The below documents outline the proposed (and now approved) changes that will be implemented in the SU.
