1.2 What is expected from projects?
The project may be expected to deliver financial benefits to the organisation.
In the public sector projects are usually expected to lead to social, economic and political outcomes.

How can we empower the powerless through economic development?
Today there is a well-established development ‘industry’ spanning NGOs, state actors, academics, and — increasingly — corporations. Each has their own models of how to help the ‘bottom billion’ escape crushing poverty and these models are increasingly competing for political support, media attention, and donor money. This session will explore the obstacles to economic development from the perspective of empowerment, and will also offer real examples of projects that have created last
Powerful women: Shifting the status quo
An emerging phenomenon in parts of the developing world is that of women holding power in political structures, including structures previously seen as being the preserve of men. Women also navigate traditional power structures to bring to the fore the economic interests and societal rights of women. Are there robust and sustainable models emerging which can illuminate political, legal, economic power structures? Women share how they brought vitality and hope to their communities.
State power and social innovation
For many social entrepreneurs governments are a crucial source of income, but also a barrier to action because of their perceived inability to innovate and change. Yet most academics, commentators, and social activists recognise that genuine systemic global change requires institutional and political entrepreneurship. This panel will explore examples of state social entrepreneurship and will consider the question: to what extent is government the best solution or the biggest problem to addressin
Tim Kendall: 'Ivor Gurney: First War Poet'
Professor Tim Kendall considers what composer and poet Ivor Gurney understood by the phrase 'war poet' and how he saw his own work as belonging to (and eminent amidst) a tradition of writing about war. Tim Kendall examines the ways in which Gurney represents poetry, and the figure of the poet, in his own work; and assesses Gurney's hopes for the efficacy of such poetry - whether as acts of witness, of escapism, or of political intervention. Tim Kendall is Professor of English Literature at the

PESTEL analysis considers political, economic, sociological, technological, environmental and legal factors on business
Several concluding points are worth drawing attention to. First, it is clear that the general thrust of EU policy making, whether this be pushed by the Commission or the Council of Ministers, is one that embodies a neo-liberal, market-based liberalisation and de-regulatory agenda, though as with any programme of this kind, there are anomalies and reversals to this overall trajectory. Nevertheless, it is not one that has foregrounded the idea of a ‘social Europe’, even though this doe
1.4.2 Struggles over the SGP
The real political struggles emerged at the end of 2003 when France and Germany were called to account by the Commission for overtly breaking the 3 per cent deficit rule. The background to this dispute can be seen in the data presented in Table 3. Clearly, although the EU-15 as a whole were keeping to the rule during the early 2000s, France and Germany went into a 3 per cent plus deficit from 2002 onwards.
