A New Seminar Series hosted by Manchester Metropolitan University and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs

In this inaugural lecture, Professor Kevin Albertson from the Future Economies Research Centre, Manchester Metropolitan University will theorise the conflicting claims of the global, the national and the local on individuals and the democratic governments they form. In “Globalisation, Nationalism and Devolution: Promoting localism in an interconnected world” he will be arguing, amongst other things, that globalisation produces losers as well as winners and the role that an appropriate nationalism and localism might play in shaping the economic and social consequences of modern global forces.

This free seminar, including time for subsequent questions, will take place in the London offices of HMRC and Manchester Metropolitan University Business School.
