IIPPE Training Workshops, Open Economics Forum (OEF) and the Department of Economics (SOAS University of London) present a two-day workshop:
Replacing UK Austerity: Towards Progressive Policies
The workshop will take place on the 21st and 22nd of March 2016 in V111 (Vernon Square Campus of SOAS). Confirmed speakers include Ourania Dimakou, Sue Himmelweit, Photis Lysandrou, Jo Michell and Simon Mohun. The workshop seeks to unpick the causes of the financial crisis and the way in which the financial crisis transformed into a recession; examines the nature of regulation of the financial markets; offers a feminist appraisal of the economic record of the coalition and conservative governments and assesses the scope for alternative economic policies offered through the Labour leadership. We are seeking an audience of engaged participants, including undergraduate, postgraduate students, junior academics and activists with an interest in alternative economic policies.
