Global public health policy has long been shaped by concerns about infectious disease outbreaks, and increasingly non-communicable conditions. Techniques and approaches from epidemiology have occupied a central position, and economic framings of problems and solutions hold ever-more traction.
An application-only early-career workshop will take place in Edinburgh city centre on 18 October 2017. The workshop aims to address the question: How can social science improve global health? Interrogating the role of research in international policy’.
The speakers are as follows:
- Dr Sudeepa Abeysinghe, Lecturer in Global Health Policy, University of Edinburgh
- Dr Anthony Costello, Director of the Department of Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health, World Health Organization
- Professor Liz Grant, Personal Chair of Global Health and Development, Director of the Global Health Academy, and Assistant Principal for Global Health, University of Edinburgh
- Dr David Reubi, Wellcome Trust Fellow, King’s College London
The workshop will be an afternoon event, in which 25 ECRs (i.e.. PhD students and recent postdoctoral scholars) will present 5 minutes work-in-progress presentations, with feedback from the speakers. Following the workshop, there will be a public panel discussion.
The event is funded by the British Academy, via a Rising Star Engagement Award.
