Pardee Center Completes Spring 2024 Global Health Politics Workshop Speaker Series

The Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future recently concluded the second year of its new Global Health Politics Workshop (GHPW) speaker series.

The four-part Spring 2024 series included talks on exploring economically-driven health inequities, reducing maternal mortality, seeking justice for harm in situations where public authorities bear some responsibility, and understanding the role of financialized capitalism on the price and value of medicines. The monthly series, which has included 16 talks to date, will continue in the fall.

The series is part of a project convened by Pardee Center Faculty Research Fellow Prof. Joseph Harris with the goal of bringing together leading social scientists from the disciplines of anthropology, political science, and sociology, along with practitioners in Boston and around the world, to advance the understanding of health phenomena in a globally interconnected world.
