Living on the edge: the growth of precariousness and why it matters for health

Seminar _icon DB

Martin McKee will argue why the concept of precariousness, in areas such as food, housing, and labour, must be incorporated into health and policy debates, complementing existing thinking on the social determinants of health and the mutual interaction between population health and economic performance. 
The lecture will be followed by debate on McKee's analysis and the impact on national and local policy.
