Workshop on the history of investment diplomacy

28 06 2019

Stephanie Decker has posted a summary of an interesting workshop on the history of investment diplomacy that recently took place in London’s Goodenough College, a residential college in London.  The workshop sounds very interesting and the venue was perfect, since Goodenough College is named after a benefactor, Sir William Goodenough, whose career at Barclays Bank perfectly illustrates the relationship between imperialism and the protection of investment. Goodenough’s imperial career inspired him to support an Oxbridge-style residential college in London that would provide a home to postgraduate students from the Empire-Commonwealth. (Today, Goodenough College welcomes students from non-Commonwealth countries as well).

Anyway, you can read a description of the workshop here Workshop on the history of investment diplomacy
