Anglo German Foundation – Lecture Series

This lecture series was endowed to commemorate the work of the Anglo-German Foundation for the Study of Modern Industrial Society (1973-2009). The first lecture was delivered in 2011 under the auspices of the British Academy by Sir Tony Atkinson on “Britain, Germany and Social Europe 1973-2020”. The series is now managed by NIESR, and takes place in alternate years in London and Berlin on a topic of public policy interest.

The 2019 lecture was given on 25 June 2019 at the German Institute for Economic Research in Berlin. The speaker was Professor David Miles, who presented the lecture “How unfair is GDP? The half-life of Economic Injustice”, following an introduction from Rachel King. You can view the programme here.

The 2018 lecture was given on 18 April 2018 at NIESR by Nicola Fuchs-Schündeln, Professor for Macroeconomics and Development at Goethe University Frankfurt. Her AGF lecture was entitled “Hours worked around the world – facts and driving forces”. The German Embassy sponsored the event, which was followed by a reception.
