National Pay Award: update

Although the national pay negotiations for 2013-14 between UCEA and the HE trade unions failed to reach an agreement over the national pay award, UCEA has advised HEIs to pay the employers final offer (made some six months ago) of 1 per cent in December.

In line with others in the sector LSE will be processing the increase (backdated to 1 August 2013) in the December payroll on the 24th of the month - just in time for Christmas.

The School regrets that the dispute is still ongoing, but has taken the decision to implement the pay increase now given that the majority of staff are not participating in the dispute.

The revised LSE pay scales are now published on the HR website.

For more information on the pay negotiations, visit www.ucea.ac.uk/en/empres/paynegs/current.

Jean-Paul Faguet

  LSE academics honoured by the Political Studies Association

Two LSE academics, Professor Patrick Dunleavy and Dr Jean-Paul Faguet, have been honoured for their work in political science at the Political Studies Association (PSA) annual awards ceremony.

Professor Patrick Dunleavy (pictured), Chair of the LSE Public Policy Group (PPG), was selected for a PSA Special Recognition Award due to his unrelenting commitment to stressing the relevance of political science to real world politics. An advocate of greater academic engagement in public life and proponent of the power of new media, Professor Dunleavy was the leading force behind the creation of the LSE British Politics and Policy and the European Politics and Policy (EUROPP) blogs, which are among the most widely read blogs in political science.

Professor Dunleavy said: "I'm most grateful to the PSA for this award - yet I feel that it really reflects the achievements of the LSE PPG staff as a whole. Creating LSE's successful School-wide blogs has been a huge collective effort. And a lot of modern research requires large teams. I'd like to thank all my PPG colleagues for their great work."

Dr Jean-Paul Faguet (pictured), Reader in the Political Economy of Development, received the WJM Mackenzie Book Prize for his publication Decentralization and Popular Democracy: governance from below in Bolivia.

Dr Faguet said: "I am greatly honoured by this award, and also completely surprised. Past winners are an incredibly impressive list, but had not previously included an international development book so I feel very fortunate indeed." More
 

 
    Policing for a better Britain

Police and Crime Commissioners should be abolished and replaced by a new system, an independent review of policing in England and Wales has recommended.

Policing for a Better Britain, the final report of the Independent Police Commission launched on Monday 25 November, presents a bold and radical vision of how to deliver fair and effective policing in these economically difficult times.

The Independent Police Commission, which was initiated by Labour’s Yvette Cooper in 2011, is chaired by Lord John Stevens, former Head of the Metropolitan Police, with Professor Jennifer Brown, Co-Director of the Mannheim Centre for Criminology at LSE, as Deputy Chair.

The report aims to provide a roadmap for the professional evolution of the police force and sets out 37 recommendations covering eight key themes: a social justice model of neighbourhood policing; creating effective partnerships; achieving better democratic governance; a new deal for police officers and staff; building a police profession; raising standards and remedying misconduct; a structure fit for purpose; and making savings and efficiencies.

    LSE students help charity develop digital support services for young people

Dr Will Venters, Lecturer in Information Systems, and former LSE student Lotta Holmberg shared insights from a unique collaboration with digital charity YouthNet at an event at LSE yesterday.

In March a group of MSc students embarked on a project with YouthNet, to help the charity develop new digital solutions to support the UK’s young people.

Students were tasked with designing a mobile app to complement YouthNet’s existing digital lifeline, TheSite.org. The app, called ‘StepFinder’ pinpoints local services, connecting young people to offline support. The project group created a report with its suggestions on StepFinder’s content, features and the technical specifications alongside implementation and evaluation measures to justify its sustainability.

Dr Venters said: "Working with a charity in this way gives our students experience of the complexity of analysis and design reflecting real world problems, and allows them to put their theoretical knowledge into practice. We hope to provide many more opportunities to our MSc students to explore similarly innovative new territories for their studies."
 

 
   

Academics home and away

Professor Eve Mitleton-Kelly, Director of the Complexity Group, attended the World Economic Forum summit in Abu Dhabi on 18-20 November, as a member of the Complex Systems Global Agenda Council and reported on two workshops she organised with the Catastrophic Risks Council on Pandemics.

Professor Danny Quah, Professor of Economics and International Development, spoke at the Bristol Festival of Economics on Friday 22 November, on the New World Economy. He argued that the profound economic shifts away from the world's traditional policy-making centres needed to be worked with rather than against.

    £150 billion in five years - league table throws new light on cost of banking misconduct

Ten of the world’s leading banks have racked up fines and similar "conduct costs" of nearly £150 billion over a period of just five years.

This is one of the findings revealed in a new analysis published by LSE.

The researchers, led by LSE Professor Roger McCormick, assessed the costs accrued by ten of the world’s leading banks across the UK, Europe and America as a result of misconduct. When put together, and reviewed over the period 2008-12, these ten banks alone incurred nearly £150 billion for misconduct of various kinds, including mis-selling PPI and other products, manipulating LIBOR, and failing to observe anti-money laundering rules.

The project's findings give, for the first time, a picture of how the banks compare with each other. More
 

 
    EU enlargement isn't working - new report from LSE IDEAS

The Eurozone crisis, enlargement fatigue within EU states and a loss of confidence in the European project have made the prospect of EU membership much less attractive for neighbouring countries.

Forty years after the accession of the UK, enlargement, once seen as the EU’s most effective foreign policy tool, is in peril. This is the argument made in a new special report launched by LSE IDEAS.

The report, The Crisis of EU Enlargement, features contributions by leading academics and practitioners including former EU Commissioner for Enlargement, Günter Verheugen, and former LSE Philippe Roman Chair and Pulitzer Prize winner, Anne Applebaum. The report examines the historical development of the EU’s enlargement strategy and the internal and external challenges facing the policy today. More
 

 
   

Squabbling meerkats make better decisions

Conflicting interests within a group can lead to better collective decisions - if you’re a social animal such as a meerkat - according to new research by a team of political scientists and biologists from LSE and the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin.

The research, published in the November issue of the journal The American Naturalist, shows that far from hampering decision-making, conflict can lead to better results. However, this depends on individual animals sharing the group’s overall goal to, for example, search for food, avoid becoming prey, shelter or rest.

The researchers developed a decision-making model which demonstrates that if individuals in a group have slightly different small-scale goals they are less likely to make the same mistake as another individual in the group, than would be predicted by ‘chance’. The differing goals within a group are a result of animals trying to optimise their own personal gains from a decision.

Professor Christian List, one of the researchers from LSE, said: "Collective decisions in groups where there are lots of minor disagreements actually offset errors made by individuals. Counter-intuitively, this means that the ‘quality’ of a decision for a group as a whole may improve with the number of differing decision-makers within it - although this plateaus at a certain number of animals."

    Many Brazilian children are going online without adult guidance

More than two-thirds of Brazilian children (68-78 per cent depending on socio-economic status) surveyed for the first comprehensive study into Brazilian children's online experiences believe they know more about the internet than their parents or guardians, with over half (53 per cent) living in families where the adults responsible for them are not internet users.

This is a stark comparison with children across Europe, where only 28-46 per cent report that they know more than their parents about the internet.

These are some of the findings published by EU Kids Online, a research project based at LSE. The report uses data from the first wave of the ICT Kids Online Brazil Survey on children's online use by the Centre for Studies on Information and Communication Technologies in Brazil alongside previous EU Kids Online research to compare European and Brazilian children's online experiences.

The researchers find that children across Brazil and Europe reveal many similar patterns of use and activities. More
 

 
    Future Living: bin-less homes, nanoscopic robots and ultrasonic baths

A new report from LSE and Veolia Environnment, the environmental services company, envisages the home of the future with nanoscopic robots sorting materials, self-cleaning bathrooms and ultrasonic baths. But it also contains stark warnings with two contrasting visions of urban living in 2050.

The report, Imagine 2050, outlines two scenarios where environmental technology will transform the home of the future - one in the context of a circular economy, the other in the context of a linear economy.

The report describes one future city in which system-level planning has created a dense, resource-efficient society characterised by collaborative consumption, shared ownership and local self-reliance. It also models an alternative scenario in which disparate and unregulated development has led to a resource-hungry urban sprawl where private consumption and ownership is prioritised over long-term communal thinking.

    Jen Tarr  

with..... Dr Jen Tarr

I’m Assistant Professor in Research Methodology in the Department of Methodology and I convene one of our big, interdisciplinary qualitative methods courses. I’m currently working on a research project on non-textual ways of communicating chronic pain. I’ve been at LSE since October 2009 when I moved from the Department of Sociology at Trinity College Dublin.

I came to London from Canada over a decade ago to do a PhD, and I ended up staying. It can happen! I live near Alexandra Palace with my partner, our six month old daughter, and a very aloof cat. I love colour and texture and on the increasingly rare occasions when I have spare time, I knit, spin and weave.

What advice would you give to new students coming to LSE?

Keep an open mind and study and read widely. Even if you know exactly what you want to do when you graduate, you may be surprised what skills you end up using. Sometimes things that seem pointless at the time end up becoming career defining. I hated research methods as an undergraduate and look what happened to me!

If you could experience working in another department/office at LSE, which would it be?

I think I’d like to work in the Centre for Learning Technology (CLT), not only because they’ve always been incredibly helpful whenever I’ve had questions, but because I think there’s so much room to explore the use of technology in teaching. It’s hard to have time to keep up but I’d like to do more.

Can you dance and, if so, what is your favourite dance?

I started taking ballet lessons when I was six and studied contemporary dance for a year at university in Canada. These days I prefer hot yoga.

Can you remember what you bought with your first pay cheque?

Not my very first one, but I remember saving up from my summer job one year to buy a new computer, designed to spec. It was my first big purchase with my own money. Two years later I packed it into a suitcase and brought it to London, where I coerced a visiting friend to come to Bloomsbury and help me carry a huge second-hand CRT monitor back to southeast London on the tube! Believe it or not, she did recently come to visit again.

What has been the most memorable day in your life, so far?

I’m struggling to choose one. Maybe because all the recent sleep deprivation associated with having a small baby has made my memory a bit hazy.

What is your favourite item of clothing?

A blue and green vintage 1970s ballgown I bought in Greenwich for £23 in my first year here. I bought it for a fancy dress party but I’ve since worn it to the opera at Glyndebourne several times.
