Research Symposium: Valueworks - Effects of Financialization along the Copper Value Chain
On behalf of an international research consortium in which it is a partner, UNRISD is organizing two events in Geneva:
- Round Table Discussion: Monday, 10 December 2018, 18.00–20.00 at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies
- Research Symposium: Tuesday, 11 December 2018, 09.00–16.30 at the Palais des Nations
Both events are open to the public.
The events present the research results of the Valueworks project, funded by SNIS. For an introduction to the issues, see this blog post by project collaborator Rita Kesselring.
The two-year research project Valueworks, funded by SNIS (Swiss Network for International Studies), investigates the economic relations between Switzerland and Zambia in the field of copper mining and trading. The starting point was the massive increase in transit trade transactions via Switzerland, which have an impact on the entire value chain. - Rita Kesselring
More than 20 researchers and representatives of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from Switzerland, Germany, England, China and Zambia have gathered research results at three conferences in Switzerland and Zambia to date and looked for ways to make the findings available to a wider public.
