Structural Power and the Reciprocal Influences Between Business and Politics

A roundtable to celebrate Pepper Culpepper


Pepper CulpepperIt has already been six years since Pepper Culpepper joined the SPS department here at the EUI, where he has been teaching a band of supervisees to become ambitious scholars in political science. As the time has now come for him to move on to new adventures, we – the faculty and his supervisees – would like to show our gratitude for his most valuable work here at the Department, with a Roundtable in which we’ll discuss one of his favorite themes. 

The Roundtable shall feature different presentations on the relationship between capitalism and democracy and will offer extensive room for discussion.
