The Political Economy and Law Seminar Series (PEL Series) offers lectures from an interdisciplinary array of emerging and prominent scholars and practitioners to address the growing challenges facing the hegemony of global liberalism. The Seminars aspire to develop innovative studies into the distributional stakes attached to current institutionalized political arrangements and formulate alternative models of governance and development.
This 2010-2011 year, the PEL Series focuses on the question of 'the Commons' to encourage speakers to foreground concerns that are often dismissed from the sensibilities and practices within the management of the global community: such as, the sustainability of industrial led growth as a model for global economic governance and the contemporary distinctions between private and public legal regimes.
