Presentation of Doctoral Dissertation: “The Fox Building the Henhouse: Corporate Influence on Global Health Governance and the Risks to the World Health Organization

July 16, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The BSIA community is invited to Tracey Wagner-Rizvi’s ‘public presentation’ of her doctoral dissertation.  Tracey’s dissertation seeks to answer the following questions: 1) In what ways have profit-oriented NSAs engaged with the WHO as a site of global health governance on substantive policies and paradigms that shape policy-making? 2) What are the implications for the WHO of the agency’s enhanced engagement with the private sector? This dissertation examines these questions broadly as well as through in-depth analyses of the specific cases of the baby food and soda industries.  The formal dissertation, which is closed to the public, will take place on July 28th.

This event is open to BSIA faculty, postdocs, fellow and students (past and present). Please email events@balsillieschool.ca for the log in details.
