Public Choice workshop

Landgreven 3, 3. sal. 1301 KBH K

CEPOS inviterer til Public Choice workshop i København d. 24. januar.

Workshoppen præsenterer den nyeste forskning inden for Public Choice teori, og deltagerlisten rummer en række udenlandske og danske topforskere inden for disciplinen. Public Choice handler om, hvordan politikere, embedsmænd, vælgere og andre aktører agerer over for hinanden.

Emnerne spænder vidt; fx om hvorvidt pavebesøg er godt for menneskerettighederne i et land, hvordan tillid bliver påvirket af korruptionsskandaler, og de danske kommuners brug af udlicitering.

Arrangementet varer fra kl. 11.00 til 18.00 og er primært rettet mod forskere, men alle interesserede er velkomne. Det er bestemt også muligt kun at deltage i udvalgte dele af arrangementet. Bemærk at alle oplæg bliver holdt på engelsk.

Blandt deltagerne er fx hvad man nok godt kan kalde Danmarks uofficielle konge af Public Choice teori – Martin Paldam. Martin Paldam er professor emeritus fra Århus Universitet, tidligere økonomisk rådgiver ved FN og forskningsprofessor ved Verdensbanken i Washington.

I alt vil der være oplæg fra omkring 20 forskere.

Tilmelding her.
