Andrew Gamble, political scientist and head of the department of politics at Cambridge University, spoke at a special Policy Network seminar on 21 November 2007. His presentation, entitled Britain and the Global Economy, explored the historical and current impact of globalisation on Britain’s economy.

Background

The event is the sixth 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; Dr Waltraud Schelkle, lecturer in political economy at the London School of Economics; 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.
