Eamonn McNamara will present his MPhil thesis on the 1998 Belfast or Good Friday Agreement (GFA), a political agreement in Northern Ireland which offered the chance to end the thirty year conflict in Northern Ireland known as ‘the Troubles.’ While many scholars have studied the political, economic and social impacts of the GFA, few have focused on how the Agreement meant to non-political actors, especially ‘victims’ of the Troubles.

Kantian Communitarian Contractarianism and Its Institutions

Hartmut Kliemt

Fundamental characteristics of recent non-Kantian, non-communitarian “contractarian” approaches are summed up graphically to the right [see below]. These approaches grew out of a rational choice and game theoretic tradition of explaining and justifying the emergence of social order and the state as equilibria of interaction described in terms of Folk theorem logic, growth of conventions etc. (Michael Taylor, Andrew Schotter, Robert Sugden, Brian Skyrms or Ken Binmore and Robert Axelrod).

Date and time:  Wednesday, 1st March 2017 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Professor Matthew Gray and Dr Sriram Shankar

A long run focus of labour market research has been on understanding the reasons why women receive, on average, a lower hourly wage than men.

By exploring a proportionality profile graphic for these ten elections, this seminar will expand on these observations and also show that:

Marriage squeeze of minority populations in Yunnan

Demography - events - Mon, 2017-02-06 12:05
Date and time:  Fri, 24th Feb 2017 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm Presenter:  Professor Jun Yang Location:  Jean Martin Room, Beryl Rawson Building (#13)

Long-term inequalities in male to female sex ratios have led to a surplus of men and subsequent marriage market imbalances in China. This has been further complicated by the practice of brides marrying upward in social class, which has disproportionally affected lowest-class men in rural areas. The patterns of marriage squeeze are analyzed using data from field research conducted on minorities in several villages in Yunan Province.
