Structural Power and the Reciprocal Influences Between Business and Politics
A roundtable to celebrate Pepper Culpepper
It 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. As a political scientist, Pepper is notoriously haunted by the question of how business and politics reciprocally exercise power over one another. His most influential book, “Quiet Politics” – besides being an impressive contribution to the field – is a clear acknowledgement of the dedication with which he engages with this type of questions.
The Roundtable shall feature different presentations on the relationship between capitalism and democracy and will offer extensive room for discussion.
Date/Location: 24 May 2016 (14:00 - 18:30), Emeroteca
