The French Front National and the challenge to Europe's democracies

The French Front National and the challenge to Europe's democracies
Date
22/02/2017 (15:00-17:00)
Location:
Main Lecture Theatre (MLT)
Description
This timely event will discuss the challenge posed by Marine Le Pen's far right-wing Front National. Many seem to believe that this party along with a number of similar ones across Europe moderated their ideology and even became "mainstream". Is this the case? Did racism disappear? How would France's society eventually work under Le Pen? All this is assuming a relevance due to the French presidential election of April-May 2017, Donald Trump's breakthrough, and the coming elections in the Netherlands and Germany.

Not all cohorts are born equal: Economic activity and parental selection

Not all cohorts are born equal: Economic activity and parental selection
Date
02/03/2017 (18:15)
Location:
Windsor Building Auditorium
Description
Potential parents may consider the economic situation when planning to conceive. Theoretically, an economic downturn has two opposite effects on the demand for children; it reduces household income and the time-costs of having children. The relative size of these effects may depend on family characteristics; families with a greater attachment to the labour market may be more sensitive to the income effect than families whose labour market participation is more marginal. This would lead to differences in parental composition and long-term consequences on the outcomes of children conceived at different points of the business cycle. This lecture will provide empirical evidence on this phenomenon. For further information please click on the link above.

Managing sustainably through accounting without numbers

Managing sustainably through accounting without numbers
Date
06/03/2017 (18:15)
Location:
Windsor Building Auditorium
Description
Managers rely on a variety of information to effectively and efficiently run their operations. Much of this information is quantified and evaluated through accountancy practices. In this lecture, Jeffrey Unerman explains that as organisations recognize the urgent need to manage their operations in a more socially and environmentally sustainable manner, over-reliance on quantified data in decision-making becomes increasingly problematic. He argues that to remain relevant in addressing the added complexities involved in managing for social and environmental sustainability, accountancy needs to capture and communicate a diverse range of qualitative information.

The triumph of distrust: the Russian revolution and Soviet society

The triumph of distrust:  the Russian revolution and Soviet society
Date
07/03/2017 (18:15)
Location:
Windsor Building Auditorium
Description
'The Russian revolution and subsequent civil war undermined or destroyed most of the symbolic systems and institutions which had (imperfectly) sustained social solidarity in Tsarist Russia. The Marxist-Leninist ideology and Communist Party institutions which replaced them encouraged an outlook which was both millennarian and apocalyptic. They generated a narrative which projected a dualistic world of absolute good and absolute evil. They required total trust or total distrust. This dualism reached its terrible apogee in Stalin's terror of the 1930s. Even though the extreme forms of the terror were subsequently eased, and although Khrushchev tried to rule by recreating trust in the party by different means, Soviet society remained marked by the dualism inherited from Lenin and Stalin. The dichotomy of trust/distrust remained a fundamental feature of the Soviet system right up to its end.' For further information please click on the link above.
