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.
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.
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.
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.
In line with the "Climate Week NYC" and the General Assembly of the United Nations, many webinars are related to these two events. Apart from that, we'll have digital platforms under scrutiny, women empowerment, the independence of central banks, fintechs and a 2-day conference on security.
The selection for this week brings some interesting webinars on defense, the impact of Covid-19 in Asia and Latin America, new economy and democracy. I've selected a few webinars on public affairs as well.
The political trend remains positive. While the economy suffers a serious retraction, it was not a surprise. The public management continues to be a week link, but the government is trying to deliver structural reforms. Not enough to put it on neutral.
Brazilian politics remain positive. However, the economy is under fiscal pressure, and there is a growing distance from the government's plans and what it can deliver.
The selection of webinars for this week brings amazing events. Try not to miss the the conference at Oxford, about social outcomes. Besides that, interesting webinars on central banking, energy, Russia, geopolitics and global business.
