This is the selection of webinars for this week about political economy, public policy and business-government relations. Some interesting webinars about the US elections, politics, trade, regulation, democracy and some thoughts on Lebanon.
All webinars are in English, except the ones with a title in Portuguese. Please, observe the time zones, and thanks for all the suggestions. I’ve put a PDF version for printing if you’d prefer.
