To coincide with the 4th annual FSN conference, Ronen Palan will be giving a public lecture at City, University of London on the topic of arbitrage power and the nature of corporate agency today. His talk will draw on extensive empirical research conducted as part of a four-year ERC Advanced Grant called CORPLINK, which focuses on how contemporary firms use complex global networks and international business structures to avoid and evade tax. The event is organised through the Finance and Society Network (FSN), with support from the City Political Economy Research Centre (CITYPERC). It is open to all and free of charge.
