This month, Professor Colin Hay attended the European Sociological Association Conference, Milan. Before this, he presented a paper on asset-based welfare and the British crisis at Sciences Po, Paris for the Premier séminaire: finance et protection sociale.

Meanwhile, the other half of the SPERI Directorate, Professor Tony Payne, visited the Centre for Global Governance Studies at Leuven University, Belgium, speaking at both a public debate and a workshop focused on ‘The G20: Global Governance or Global Government?’ held on 8 November 2012.
To top off what has been a very European Autumnal period for SPERI, Research Fellow Jeremy Green and Ph D student Scott Lavery visited Vienna at the end of October for the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) Young Academic Network meeting.
