Professor J. P. Singh will be presenting his work on 'Sweet Talk: Paternalism and Collective Action in North-South Trade Relations', on the 10th May from 16:30-18:00 in room A0.23 (Social Sciences).

J. P. Singh is Chair and Professor of Culture and Political Economy at the University of Edinburgh. In his new book, Sweet Talk, he reveals how the global North ultimately bars developing nations from flourishing in the world economy. His talk will offer a provocative rethinking of how far our international relations have come, and how far we still have to go.
