Companies in the Front Line: corporations and the anti-globalisation movement

RESCHEDULED FOR: Wednesday 27 November, 6.30pm
Old Theatre, Old Building 
 

Free market capitalism has become the dominant world ideology and made many prosperous, but, argues Noreena Hertz, the state, in appearing to serve business, may be nullifying democracy's social contract to represent and protect the rights of all citizens equally. Protest is often becoming a more effective political weapon than the ballot box.

Noreena Hertz will be speaking on Companies in the Front Line: corporations and the anti-globalisation movement on Thursday 14 November at LSE.

Noreena Hertz is associate director of the Centre for International Business at the University of Cambridge. Her acclaimed publication The Silent Takeover made her one of the one of the world's most sought after commentators on economic globalisation and led to her being dubbed 'the British Naomi Klein' by sections of the media.

This event is free and open to all. No ticket is required.

Noreena Hertz will be addressing the issues of gender in Women on the Edge: globalisation and gender on Tuesday 3 December at 6.30pm.
