Centre of Development Studies Lecture Series

'Globalisation and the Nordic development model'

Prof Ove Kaj Pedersen,
Thursday 9th March 3.30pm-5pm
Room SG1

Prof Ove Kaj Pedersen is Professor at the Copenhagen
Business School. He has written extensively on a wide
array of subjects, including books and articles on the
Nordic development model. His lecture will analyse the
origins of the Nordic model and the way in which it is
evolving in the face of the challenges of globalisation.
His lecture will be exceptionally useful for students in
CDS in relation to their understanding of the role of
state and market in development.


"It has been almost two years since the murder of Giulio Regeni in Cairo. As we approach this anniversary, we are no nearer to knowing the truth of what happened to this promising post-graduate, tortured and killed while pursuing wholly legitimate academic research... It has been especially troubling to note that, in the absence of apparent progress in investigations into Giulio’s death, attention has been turned to his doctoral supervisor, Dr Maha Abdelrahman – an honourable and distinguished scholar..." Stephen J Toope, Vice-Chancellor. To read the message in full, please go to our News page. The message can also be found on the University of Cambridge homepage.

We are delighted and proud to see that the Centre has gone from no.8 (2015) to no.6 (2016) to no.4 (2017) in the field of Development Studies in the QS Survey. This would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work from everyone within the Centre.
