(Microwaves for heating lunch are available) Contemporary advanced political economies in general and economic organisations in particular are increasingly being characterised as financialized, where scholars from various fields bring to our attention that corporate governance as the separation of ownership and control is at the core of this development. We suggest that the dominant theory addressing this relationship (agency theory) can be understood and conceptualised as being performed.

Steve Redpath: Battling with conflicts in conservation of natural resources

Time: 11/28/2017 at 2:00 PM,
Location: Gothenburg Research Institute - Room 326, level 3, Viktoriagatan 13, Göteborg

Event type: Research profile seminar

Seminar with Professor Steve Redpath, ecologist/conservation scientist at the University of Aberdeen. He is currently King Carl XVI Gustaf Guest Professor in Environmental Science: "Conservation conflicts are widespread and typically damaging to biodiversity and human livelihoods. They arise from situations where conservation objectives clash with other objectives, such as those of farmers, or foresters or hunters or business or development. I am interested in understanding such conflicts and thinking about their management."

Lecturer: Steve is an ecologist/conservation scientist at the University of Aberdeen who works at the interface between natural science, social science, policy and stakeholders to tackle key research questions in environmental sustainability. He has a particular interest in exploring the conflicts around conservation through cross-disciplinary research. He and his team have led high-profile research projects into major conservation problems in the UK and increasingly on a range of conflicts across the world. He has written 170 peer reviewed publications and edited two books. He is currently King Carl XVI Gustaf Guest Professor in Environmental Science.

In the autumn of 2015 Sweden received an extraordinarily large number of people in connection with what was later referred to as the "refugee crisis". In retrospect, civil society has been a significant force in meeting the most basic needs of the refugees in Sweden.
