Who owns what and why? (WOWAW) is a stimulating public event series hosted by UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose. This thought-provoking series explores ideas of ownership, value extraction and value distribution. From examining who owns our data to exploring how capitalism restricts homeownership, the talks discuss how the power of the state can be harnessed to actively shape markets so they are designed in the public interest.
This series brings together world-leading thinkers — from healthcare, to public access, to knowledge and from data ownership to climate change. It links new economic thinking with new practical solutions that create inclusive and sustainable growth, with IIPP’s concepts of public value and public purpose at the core.
