person_1.pngProfessor Ronald Labontéthe Canada Research Chair in Globalisation and Health and a Professor at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Ottawa, will come and present findings from a multi-year study of trade, tobacco farming and tobacco control in three sub-Saharan African countries: Kenya, Zambia and Malawi. The seminar is organised in conjunction with the LSHTM Global Health and Development Seminar Series and will be chaired by Dr David Reubi, from King’s College London.

 Jointly organised by King’s College London (KCL) and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), the Critical Global Health Seminar Series brings together critically-minded social scientists, public health experts and practitioners together to debate key areas of concern for global health today and reflect on how these should be approached and explored. The seminars are organised as a platform for social scientists working in the field to present and reflect on their current and planned research in discussion with the chair-discussant and the audience. More broadly, the aim of the series is to provide a forum to discuss emerging contradictions and frictions in global health research and policy as well as the challenges and opportunities these present to social scientific inquiry. Through open-ended and candid exchange on the experiences of working in the global health field, we seek to develop new avenues for critical thought in the social sciences and beyond.
