From: Tuesday October 28, 2014, 4:30 pm

To: Tuesday October 28, 2014, 6:30 pm

The NCOSS Windows on Economics Seminar Series 2014 will investigate the relationship between economics and social policy. In six well-paced and thought-provoking seminars, participants will be guided towards a clearer understanding of key economic concepts and their influence on social policy and government decision-making processes. Designed specifically for non-economists, our expert guest speakers– including leading social policy and economic academics and practitioners – will demystify the ideas and language of economics, arming participants with the knowledge required to better engage in current and ongoing economic debates. This seminar series will be of particular use to policy officers working in a non-government organisations and managers working towards more critical and effective advocacy within the contemporary economic climate. The weekly seminars will build on one another, so that by the end of the series each participant will have an understanding of key economic concepts.
