Abstract

By bringing leading and well-known researchers to SBM such as Richards and Hindmoor, the workshop will enhance SBM’s reputation for its distinctive and interdisciplinary approach to research in political economy which spans several of its research centres, groups and clusters.

The medium/long term effects of the workshop include the development of theory leading to a rethinking of neoliberalism, recasting of the concept of moral economy to integrate it with institutional explanations, a rethinking of poverty alleviation and a recognition and making visible the institutional forces that influence how people think and behave. We hope that this will also influence policymakers who may be interested in examining the causal assumptions on which their policies are designed.

This event is free to attend and complimentary refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
