Tanner Lecture Room, Linacre College, University of Oxford

How should states reconcile the competing demands of democratic legitimacy within their borders and the ethical obligation to admit outsiders in need of their protection? This seminar will examine how states ought to act when their duty towards needy outsiders is challenged by citizens within their borders whose political judgment they are putatively required to respect. 

The panellists for this session are David Miller, Mollie Gerver and Christopher Bertram. The session will be chaired by Matthew Gibney.

“Economics for the human race”

Professor Abhijit Banerjee and Professor Esther Duflo

Economics has always been part of a broader humanist project, but that connection is often lost in the oversimplified version that dominates the public discourse. Professor Banerjee and Professor Duflo argue that a deeper understanding of modern economics and its insights is essential for reclaiming that connection. They will illustrate this by drawing on some of the key issues of today, such as immigration, trade, growth, poverty and inequality.

Standing pendulums and cables upside down: the ‘Indian Rope Trick’ in the laboratory

It has been known for around a century that vibrating the pivot point of a pendulum can cause it to stand upside down. The effect is often referred to as the ‘Kapitza pendulum’. Here we will broaden the idea and apply the concepts to inverting sets of pendulums and flexible cables. The talk will include vivid live demonstrations of the effects.
