Dr Waltraud Schelkle, Lecturer in Political Economy at the London School of Economics, delivered a presentation on Should Progressives Endorse Social Policy As A Productive Factor? at Policy Network's offices in London on Tuesday 18 September.

Schelkle explored the question of whether social policy ought to be combined with the goal of increasing labour market flexibility. Her presentation is the fifth in a series of seminars Policy Network is holding as part of an informal working group taking forward the work of its flagship Globalisation and Social Justice research initiative.

Background


The event is one in a series of seminars Policy Network is holding as part of an informal working group on globalisation and social justice.

Previous speakers in the series include John Kay, leading economist and author; Stephany Griffiths-Jones, Professor at the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex; David Held, Professor of Political Science at the London School of Economics; Richard Wilkinson, Professor of Social Epidemiology at the University of Nottingham; and Will Hutton, the Chief Executive of the Work Foundation and author of The Writing On The Wall: Why We Must Embrace China.

The working group will take forward the work of Policy Network’s flagship Globalisation and Social Justice research initiative, and will run until the end of 2007. The group will investigate the global dimension to domestic policy challenges, and will run alongside the programme of international dialogues that Policy Network is hosting this year in Chile, Australia, the United States and Brussels, as part of a contribution to an International Policy Commission.
