Posted by mjs76 at Feb 02, 2011 03:20 PM |
There is much talk nowadays about ‘national well-being’ – and the Office for National Statistics is the body with the unenviable task of working out precisely what that is. Which is why they’re coming here later this month.

The ONS will visit the University of Leicester on 21 February 2011 for a public debate on ‘Measuring National Well-being’. A panel of distinguished academics from the University and the Office for National Statistics will discuss the matter and take questions from the audience. This is your chance to influence a major national strategy so come along and chip in.

The panel members will be:

  • Paul Allin: Director of the ONS ‘Measuring National Well-being’ programme
  • Professor Simon Lilley (Chair): Head of our School of Management and Professor of Information and Organisation
  • Dr David Bartram: Senior Lecturer in Sociology
  • Dr David Harvie: Senior Lecturer in Finance and Political Economy
  • Professor Peter Jackson: Professor of Economics and Strategy
  • Dr Sandra Nolte: Lecturer in Accounting and Finance
  • Dr Jenny Pickerill: Senior Lecturer in Human Geography

The event runs from 5.45pm to 7.00pm in the Belvoir City Lounge on the second floor of the Charles Wilson Building and will be followed by a drinks reception.

Attendance is free and is open to staff, students and the general public but places are limited so please register now.
