At this alumni event on 29 November 2014 a team of Oxford academics presented some of their latest thinking on the political and economic challenges of today.

Topics discussed include the future of the welfare state, immigration and diversity, political corruption, and the financial crisis. The speakers addressed how political choices and institutions shape the economy, and in turn, how economic actors and events shape public policy. The event consists of three panels and one lecture.
