Video of Roundtable at PSA Conference 2012

SPERI Co-director Colin Hay recently attended the 62nd Political Studies Association Annual International Conference in Belfast. Here is a video of the British Journal of Political and International Relations Roundtable ‘The State of the UK Political Economy’.

As well as Professor Colin Hay, the video also features Professor Andrew Gamble (Chair of the SPERI International Advisory Board),  Dr Andrew Baker and Dr Helen Thompson; all are speakers at the upcoming SPERI Inaugural Conference ‘The British Growth Crisis: The Search for a New Model’ (16 – 18 July, University of Sheffield).

Dr Andrew Baker states in the video that:

“The launch of the Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute is a very promising development that should be encouraged, promoted & publicised… It potentially offers a vehicle for Political Science and Political Economy to have a genuine impact on crucial questions”.

This video provides just a taster of issues that our upcoming conference will tackle. Early bird rates are only available until the end of May so if you would like to attend the conference register now.

We would like to thank the Political Studies Association for allowing us to use this video and also the University of Ulster for the recording and production of the video.
