PLEASE NOTE - EVENT ONLY OPEN TO CIVIL SERVANTS
The second event in the 'Unpacking Economics' series will investigate how the public sector places a value on life when conducting cost-benefit analysis. At this event, we will explore how the values were derived, and consider alternative approaches. We'll also be looking at how the value of life is treated in different contexts across Whitehall, for instance transport and health.
Osama Rahman, Director for Analytical Services and Chief Economist at the Ministry of Justice, will chair the event.
It doesn’t matter if you have no experience of economics or a PhD in the subject: it will be an engaging, thought provoking evening for all. After the event, please join us for a festive drink at the pub!

Exploring Economics is a new network opening up economics across the civil service.
We want all policy makers to have a better understanding of economics and for new, alternative approaches to economics to be harnessed for better decision making in government.
The Unpacking Economics event series will explore topical economic issues in an easy-to-understand, accessible way.
