LSE Health and Social Care public lecture
Date: Tuesday 24 May 2011
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speakers: Professor Julian Le Grand, Professor Carol Propper, Peter Taylor-Gooby, Nick Timmins, Professor Albert Weale
Chair: Professor Stuart Corbridge
For excellent public policy, it is necessary to have a clear idea of both the ends to be achieved (including equity, quality and efficiency), and the means for achieving those ends (including the structure of motivation and incentives, and the appropriate balance between market and state). Julian has made major contributions in all of these areas, and this Seminar is an opportunity for distinguished academics and commentators to reflect on his work while developing their own ideas. Speakers include Professor Carol Propper of Imperial College and the University of Bristol; Professor Peter Taylor-Gooby of the University of Kent; Nick Timmins, Public Policy Editor of the Financial Times; Professor Albert Weale of University College, London; and, of course, Julian himself.
This event is free and open to all but pre-registration is required. Pre-registration is open until Friday 20th May 2011 and places are limited. Please register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information you can contact Champa Heidbrink and Anji Mehta on email@example.com.
