Finance and Social Justice Workshop - 21-22 March

On 21-22 March, Dr Anna Chadwick and Dr Javier Solana will be organising an inter-disciplinary workshop exploring the intersection between finance and social justice at the School of Law. LLM and PGR students are who are interested in how financial markets work and who wonder whether these could work differently, e.g. by being more inclusive or by supporting social causes, are welcome to apply following the instructions below.  

This two-day workshop aims to bring together NGOs, early career academics, and PhD and Masters students to investigate the interconnections between finance and social justice in a way that transcends conventional conference and workshop formats. 

The focal points of the workshop are two case studies formulated by Oxfam and Share Action. These case studies outline two key challenges in the design of a financial system that works for the many and not the few: reshaping the market for corporate control (Oxfam) and including social and human rights considerations in the drive for sustainable finance initiatives (Share Action). 

Participants will be asked to present analyses of (and possible solutions to) the problems identified in the case studies from their diverse methodological and disciplinary approaches. 

Deadline for applications: 18 February.
