IPE Annual Lecture, 17th January 2019:
Jacqueline Best, University of Ottowa: Little failures and doubtful successes: rethinking neoliberalism in a post-truth era
This year's Annual IPE Lecture was given by Professor Jacqueline Best, University of Ottowa, on 'Little failures and doubtful successes: rethinking neoliberalism in a post-truth era'. Jacqueline's presentation re-evaluated the early history of neoliberal policies (in the UK, USA and Canada) and challenged contemporary accounts of neoliberalism thereby opening up space for imagining a different political and economic future. The Lecture took place on Thursday, 17th January, from 17:00 to 18:30 in L5 (Science Concourse). This was also a Leverhulme Lecture.

Annual Debate on the Future of IPE, March 2019:
Appropriately enough given the date, last year's IPE Debate was on 'Brexit in Context'. The debate challenged some of the common interpretations of Brexit, whilst offering up a wider range of ways in which we can better understand it, including through gender, post-colonial and new institutionalist lenses. By broadening our vision and placing Brexit within longer term political, cultural and economic contexts, the debate shed light on Brexit as a process, and on what it means for the political economy of Britain and Europe.
We had, again, a great line-up of speakers: Professor Roberta Guerrina, University of Surrey; Professor Ben Rosamond, Copenhagen University; Dr Nadine El-Enany, Birkbeck University of London; and Dr Muireann O'Dwyer, University of Warwick.
