Professor Lord Layard, London School of Economics speaks at De Montfort University

Richard Layard is Emeritus Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics, where he was until 2003 the founder-director of the Centre for Economic Performance.

He now heads the Centre's Programme on Well-Being. Since 2000 he has been a member of the House of Lords.

His book Happiness - Lessons from a New Science was published in March 2005 and appears in 20 languages. Through his encouragement three local authorities have introduced the Resilience Programme for children in Year 7.

He was an early advocate of the welfare-to-work approach to European unemployment, and co-authored Unemployment: Macroeconomic Performance and the Labour Market which has influenced policy in many countries.
