This week, IR Soc will be hosting an event from our partners at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies with Professor Filippo Taddei. The event will be FREE and followed by a DRINKS PARTY in Trinity Bar.

Lecture: "Reforms or Promises: what do we learn from the Italian Labor Market Reform?"

Professor Taddei is a Fellow at SAIS and Director of the Bologna Institute for Policy and Research (BIPR) at SAIS Europe Johns Hopkins University. He is also Research Fellow at Collegio Carlo Alberto. Since December 2013, he has been the Economic and Labor Affairs Secretary of the Partito Democratico political party in the National Secretariat of Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

SAIS Masters Programme

Following the conclusion of his talk, Professor Taddei will also speak briefly about the new SAIS Master of Arts in Global Risk. The Master of Arts in Global Risk (MGR) is a 13-month, cohort-based program at the SAIS Europe campus in Bologna, Italy. The MGR builds on the strength of SAIS in interdisciplinary analysis by introducing students to the broad array of concepts and tools from the social sciences that are necessary to undertake sophisticated political risk analysis. Students complete a capstone project in the form of a client-based professional practicum or original thesis.

Drinks Party

The talks will be followed by a drinks party with an open bar in Trinity College. Professor Taddei will be present for questions and further discussions.
