Public lectures at the MPIfG in the winter semester 2020/21

The MPIfG is resuming its public lecture series with a number of guest lectures by internationally renowned researchers in the 2020/21 winter semester. Helen Thompson, University of Cambridge, will examine Brexit and its causes, consequences, and implications for Europe on October 26. On November 10, Julia Lynch, University of Pennsylvania, will analyze the political dynamics of rising inequality by tracing largely unsuccessful attempts by western European governments to reduce socioeconomic inequalities in health. Henry Farrell, George Washington University, will explain on December 16 how interdependence is being weaponized in our current globalized world. On January 13, Isabell Stamm, Technical University of Berlin, will show how recent transformations of ownership succession are changing the face of the German Mittelstand. Genevieve LeBaron, University of Sheffield, will explore on January 27 why over twenty years of corporate social responsibility initiatives have failed to produce worksites that are free of forced labor, modern slavery, and human trafficking.
Due to the current situation, the public lectures will mostly be online events. All current information as to format and registration will be made available on the MPIfG website. Please register for all lectures by email to
