Public lecture by Jörg Wiegratz: „Power and morals: capitalism, economic fraud and social harm in Africa and beyond“.

2017-05-22 Institute News

On the occasion of International Africa Days, dr. Jor Wiegratz will give a lecture „Power and morals: capitalism, economic fraud and social harm in Africa and beyond“. Event will take place on 26th of May (Friday), at 3:00 p.m. in room 304.  Jörg Wiegratz is Lecturer in Political Economy of Global Development at the University of Leeds. He researches the political economy and moral economy of neoliberalism in Africa and elsewhere. In the seminar, he will argue that capitalism is a moral order and moral economy, i.e. has a moral grammar. Capitalism’s moral order, together with its political-economic order, has over the last centuries produced vast social harms in numerous places, from large-scale colonial slavery, imperial wars, and workplace injuries and deaths, to climate change effects. J.Wiegratz will focus on one particularly relevant case: the massive and increasing levels of economic fraud in many countries across the world, including in sub-Saharan Africa.
