Guest Lectures

Max Planck Guest Lectures

For our guest lecture series, we regularly invite renowned researchers from Germany and abroad to present their research and discuss its legal policy implications with us. We seek to feature lectures from the research areas represented by all three of the Institute’s departments, with a spectrum of topics ranging from criminal law theory, con­sti­tu­tion­al law, and security to philosophy of law and criminology. The lecture series focuses primarily on top­ics that are closely related to the Institute’s projects – spanning both empirical and theoretical research.
To enable as many people as possible to participate as audience members, the events typically take place in the after­noon or evening. Wherever possible, lectures are recorded and made available in video podcast format on this page.

 

Upcoming Max Planck Guest Lectures

Inequality: A Key Social Determinant

Guest Lecture (in English)
  • Date: Nov 30, 2022
  • Time: 05:00 PM - 07:00 PM (Local Time Germany)
  • Speaker: Prof. Dr. em. Richard Wilkinson, FFPH
  • For nearly 50 years now, Prof. Dr. em. Richard Wilkinson has investigated the effects of income inequality which he found to produce a range of health and social problems. This work culminated in well-known TED talks and books (e.g., “The Spirit Level: Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better”, co-authored by Kate Pickett). In 2009, he co-founded The Equality Trust, a network aiming to reduce structural inequalities in the UK. In academic terms, Richard is Emeritus Professor of Social Epidemiology at the University of Nottingham Medical School, Honorary Professor at University College London, and Honorary Visiting Professor at the University of York.
