Politics remain favourable. The economic factor will have important decisions in the next weeks that will change the trend. The good news is that the public management is in a positive trend.
This is a week with some interesting webinars on the role of banks and central banks, lobbying and advocacy, corruption and a 2-day conference at Oxford on political theory.
Politics continue to provide a positive scenario for public policies, while the economic and public management factors require close observation.
This week we selected a series of events at King's College London related to Africa, and many others on the financial policies, trade and regulatory matters. 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.
Politics remains a positive factor, while the economy and public management are in neutral mode.
This week, we selected webinars on policy trade, central banks, security and about digital platforms regulation. Also there are some Harvard policy writing workshops.
Some interesting webinars on Asia, Russia, the intersection between politics, democracy, elections, banking and Covid-19.
Politics continue to be a positive factor for public policies, but not for all government initiatives. That's the case for the economy, waiting for important developments this week. The public management turned into a negative trajectory this week, not only for the "Renda Cidadã" process, but for the environmental policy as well.
Politics remain in a positive trend, with some concerns over the effectiveness of the coalition. Despite daunting numbers, the economic trend is neutral, waiting for the government's next steps. The management capacity remains low, but it is not worsening.
As the US presidential election approaches, some webinars cover that issue. Apart from that, this week's webinars talk about China, India, spending review, politics, environment and, of course, economy.
