Webinar: Competition, Inequality and B-BBEE - Lessons from quota allocations in industrial fisheries
Jointly organized by the Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies, the Centre for Competition, Regulation and Economic Development (CCRED) at University of Johannesburg and CBDS, this webinar examines the interactions between industrial fishery quota allocations by the government, black economic empowerment policy and transformation, and competition dynamics to assess the potential and limitations of regulatory and market approaches in addressing inequality in South Africa. It is embedded in a collaboration between CBDS and CCRED and based on a Working Paper that has been jointly developed by Thando Vilakazi, director of CCRED and Stefano Ponte.
GLOBE Webinar: Business, Power and Sustainability
On 30 April 2020, Stefano Ponte joined the GLOBE Webinar Series to discuss his new book "Business, Power and Sustainability in a World of Global Value Chains" (2019, Zed Books). Dr. Axel Marx (Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies, KU Leuven) served as discussant, before Prof. Ponte responded to questions from the audience. About the book: The interaction of sustainability governance and global value chains has crucial implications the world over. When it comes to sustainability the last decade has witnessed the birth of hybrid forms of governance where business, civil society and public actors interact at different levels, leading to a focus on concepts of legitimacy within multi-stakeholder initiatives (MSIs).

Med dét følger idéen om, at det er forbrugeren, der har ansvar for at handle bæredygtigt og stemme med sin pengepung. Men kan vi løse klimakrisen med bæredygtigt forbrug? Det undersøger Veronika, Mads og Joachim i dette afsnit.
Værter: Veronika Ahrensbøll Schultz, Joachim Peter Tilsted og Mads Falkenfleth Jensen.
