The Long Run Initiative
The Long Run Initiative is a not-for-profit forum co-run by members of QUCEH. The Initiative is founded on three precepts: (1) to demonstrate the practical value of historical expertise to contemporary decision makers; (2) to create dialogue between academics, businesses and government; and (3) to provide an independent and international perspective on the challenges facing business and society.
