A Pragmatic Perspective on Democracy and Regulation

14 February 2012 | 5.00pm | Seminar
School of Law, The Liberty Building, University of Leeds

Professor Sidney Shapiro is University Chair in Law, Wake Forest University and Vice-President, Center for Progressive Reform. He is one of the leading experts in administrative procedure and regulatory policy in the US.

He will discuss the first chapter of a forthcoming book (Oxford Press, 2013) on democracy, regulation, and philosophical pragmatism.  The presentation will explain the pragmatic methodology, at one time the basis of policy discourse in the United States, and argue why it should be revived as a replacement for neoliberalism, the current dominant perspective.

All welcome.
