Jennifer Philippa Eggert Invited to Research Symposium at the UN Headquarters in New York

Jennifer Philippa Eggert has been invited to participate in a research symposium organised by UN Women and the UN Security Council's Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate and UN Women. The event is taking place on 18 July at the UN Headquarters in New York.

The topic is women and terrorism, and the workshop will be attended by researchers and UN practitioners. The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers and UN practitioners who work on the topic and to inform practice by research. The IAS have very kindly agreed to cover Jennifer's expenses, so she will be able to share her research and experience as a practitioner working on women, gender and (counter)terrorism.

Symposium on the Political Economy of Higher Education and Training

You are warmly invited to attend a symposium on the political economy of higher education and training, on Friday 13th of July, 12.00-17.00 (lunch and refreshments included) at the Wolfson Research Exchange, University of Warwick.

Please register here: https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/ier/research/graduatetransitions/symposium-he-training/register_symposium

How does the socio-political context affect the spheres of higher education and training? This symposium will discuss, using the lens of the “three worlds of human capital formation” (Iversen and Stevens, 2008), how different welfare state regimes affect the design of and participation in higher education and training activities, focusing on younger people’s access to the labour market. Research has often focused on the increase in graduate supply and the expansion in HE, as well as on whether graduates are ‘matched’ in the jobs they do. However, examining the socio-political context and its interaction with higher education and training institutions can shed new light on graduates’ transitions into the labour market in different countries, focusing on the UK and Italy among others.

This event will bring together scholars on HE, graduate employment and human capital formation across different disciplines and different institutions.

Confirmed speakers include:

Dr Luca Cattani, University of Bologna

Dr Golo Henseke, Centre for Global Higher Education, UCL

Dr Daria Luchinskaya, Institute for Employment Research, University of Warwick

Dr Dorel Manitiu, AlmaLaurea, University of Bologna

Dr Giulio Pedrini, University of Bologna

Dr Gerbrand Tholen, City, University of London

Dr Charikleia Tzanakou, Politics and International Studies, University of Warwick

 This symposium is organised as part of the Warwick IAS International Visiting Fellowship scheme.
