We are very excited to have Dr Ian Whitfield from Durham giving a lecture on Wednesday 21 March at 1.30 in the DP Centre.  Dr Whitfield describes his lecture as:

‘..beginning with an overview of globalisation and its benefits and drawbacks. We will discuss how these drawbacks, whether real or perceived, can lead to a backlash and the rise of disputes, right wing politics and protectionism. Our discussion will be set against a backdrop of global economic and political events in 2016-18 (Brexit, Trump etc.) and the influence of China in global trade. Many issues relevant to Economics, Business and Politics will be analysed in this context.
