Recovering Europe: What Vision for the Continent's Future?

In Europe, the coronavirus pandemic turned out to be yet another crisis for the European Union to overcome. In devising a common response, internal tensions and disagreements emerged. Will the grand plan to recover the EU reconcile them, or are national visions too far apart to be brought together?

 could i ask you if you know romano prodi; over the 40 years my father norman macrae covered development economics at the economist, working with romano prodi in 1976 on entrepreneurial revolution was one of his most fun moments

dad died in 2010 but not before identifying sir fazle abed in bangladesh as the most miraculous half century servant leader of poorest village women- sir fazle died last year; i went to visit him 15 times in dhaka and he briefed many of us on his hope that his legacy would be a university coalition for sdg front line community builders

sir fazle's core values were franciscan - his favorite source paulo freire; i read that italy is joining with glasgow my family's home town in hosting cop26 in november- i am trying to converge groups  -through zoom and other modalities - who believe the next year is the most urgent for turning things round

i could write a longer listing of links to date if that would be relevant to you

Why study the history of development economics?

September 25 2020, 10:00

Michele Alacevich (Associate Professor of History, Department of Political and Social Science, University of Bologna) will discuss the history of development economics looking for analytical insights that can inform policy-making in the development field today. The focus will be on the political economy of development, and on how theoretical debates and the practice of development affect each other in unexpected and at times counterintuitive ways.
