Can Globalisation Benefit All?

The Globalisation Hub will be holding a workshop on 17 January 2019. This meeting will consist of a discussion between applicants from the Hub’s second research call. The workshop will take place at NIESR in London and bring together a range of experts from economics and different disciplines. Once the projects have been announced, you will be able to read about them here.


Macroeconomics has little reflection about the degree to which macroeconomic outcomes are determined by social connection, social context and social history. History, culture, and geography matter more than standard macroeconomic models allow for. As we ask whether “Globalisation Can Benefit All”, we surely have to understand the impact of globalisation on local social connections, local social contexts, and local social histories as well.
