Professor Joseph Stiglitz

Full event and ticket information: The road to freedom: economics and the good society

Joseph Stiglitz

Freedom is a core human value. But few of freedom’s advocates ask what the idea really means. Whose freedom are we – should we be – thinking about? What happens when one person’s freedom comes at the expense of another’s?

Full event and ticket information: Why women won

Claudia Goldin 747x420

How, when, and why did women in the US obtain legal rights equal to men’s regarding the workplace, marriage, family, Social Security, criminal justice, credit markets, and other parts of the economy and society, decades after they gained the right to vote?

Professor Esther Duflo

Thursday 2 May 2024, 6.45-8pm
Full event and ticket information: Addressing climate inequality

Esther Duflo

Hear new thinking on how to design and finance loss and damage funds, and how these funds might be best spent to protect vulnerable populations against the effects of climate change.

Returns queues

When all tickets for in-person events have been allocated we operate returns queues. This means that any seats left empty by ticketholders will be filled by those in the returns queue shortly before the start of the event. Entry via the returns queue is therefore not guaranteed. Please see individual event listings for returns queue information.
