Description

READ THE BUSINESS OF PEOPLE

With a general election in May and a government spending review to follow this is a critical time for social science to shout loudly about its value to the UK economy and society.

On 16th March at the LSE the Campaign for Social Science will present its new pre-election report The Business of People. We hope for a fruitful dialogue with social scientists at LSE on the current state and future direction of social science in the UK.

  • Buffet lunch served from 12.30pm
  • Main session from 1-2pm
  • Host and chair - Professor Craig Calhoun, Director & President of LSE
  • From the Campaign for Social Science Ceridwen Roberts (Oxford) and James Wilsdon (Sussex) will present the new report The Business of People and the Campaign’s recommendations for the future of social science
  • Professor Lord Nicholas Stern will respond to the report on behalf of LSE. Lord Stern is IG Patel Chair of Economics and Government at LSE and Chair of the British Academy
  • A Q+A session involving the panel and audience closes the session
  • The Campaign panel will be available before during lunch and after for individual discussions

The Business of People will be available from 24th February. All social scientists, from sociologists to economists, are encouraged to attend the event.
