I’ve been having real difficulty concentrating whilst working at home. I find it hard to start tasks, my eyes are sore, a 5-day week feels daunting and I feel anxious when I don’t complete the tasks I planned to do. I miss going to work!
At the Graduate School Drop-In today, we talked to a PhD student about concentration and productivity. We came up with a few practical ideas that I thought I’d share with you: Read the rest of this entry

Faculty of Business and Law Research Seminar: ‘Institutional Quality, Political Risk and Tourism: Evidence from Gravity Model’ 6th Feb 2019 13:00 to 14:00 TPod A (2nd Floor of Learning Hub)
Everyone welcome as Dr Thaana Ghalia investigates the role of institutional quality coupled with political risks, distance and socio-economic factors to explain tourist flow by applying the gravity model. We found that institutional quality and absence of conflict are driving factors in fostering tourism flows for both source and destination countries. Our finding suggests that institutional reform can help to boost the economies of countries with low- quality institutions. While institutional change is a positive development in its own right, our results suggest that it can also have important additional economic benefits for countries that are highly dependent on tourism.
