The seminars are open to all and run throughout the academic year.
These seminars aim to stimulate thought and research activity across the School. Many colleagues within WBS are conducting research on the governance of highly complex arenas of economic life. Governance here is understood broadly, as 'mechanisms and practices through which conduct is regulated'. The domains people are studying are expansive. They involve multiple factors (organisations, instiutions, social movements, national states) interacting at different levels, across space and time. Colleagues are analysing how such complex networks are governed through standards, laws, texts, practices and discources.
The seminars will bring these people together, from across WBS, in ways that will hopefully spark new ideas and research initiatives.
