Ralph Miliband Global Risks and Politics in the 21st Century Lecture

Date: Wednesday 1 November 2006
Time: 6.30pm
: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speakers: Professor David Held
Chair: Professor Michael Cox

David Held will explore one of the greatest paradoxes of our time: that is, that the challenges we face are increasingly global in their form and scope and yet our political capacity is weak and diminishing. The lecture explores both the advantages globalisation has brought and the serious structural vulnerability it has created.

David Held is Graham Wallas Professor of Political Science at LSE and co-director of LSE's Centre for the Study of Global Governance.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.


A version of David Held's lecture published in New Political Economy, Vol. 11, No. 2, June 2006, is available to download.
