“Gender Equality for a Sustainable Economy”:  Panelists on this International Women’s Day discussion include editors and contributors to a new book, ‘Economics and Austerity in Europe: Gendered impacts and sustainable alternatives’ which argues;

  • Heather Wakefield (Unison, Head of Local Government)
  • Prof Ozlem Onaran (University of Greenwich, GPERC)
  • Dr Hannah Bargawi (SOAS)
