Webinars of the week – 19 October

Brasília, 18 October 2020.

Dear colleagues, 

This is the selection of free webinars for this week about political economy, public policy and business-government relations. All webinars are in English, except the ones with a title in Portuguese.

If you are interested in Africa, do not miss Africa Week, a series of events para at King’s College London. I’ve included the opening ceremony on Monday, but events continue until Friday. I would highlight a book discussion on financial business power and multi-level regulation on Monday. One of the authors is Dr Scott James, my supervisor at King’s and a leading researcher on lobbying and political economy.

Please, observe the time zones, and thanks for all the suggestions.

Best regards, 

Arthur Wittenberg.
