Nobel Prize Economic Sciences laureates Christopher Pissarides, Joseph Stiglitz, and Abhijit Banerjee will be joined by Physics laureate Brian Schmidt and Peace Prize laureate Muhammad Yunus to discuss the questions and challenges facing present and future generations of workers and what working life will mean in the future during a Nobel Prize Dialogue to be hosted by the University of Pretoria (UP) on May 18.

The event is organized by the Nobel Prize Outreach and UP and aims to bring science and society closer and stimulate creative thinking by gathering Nobel Prize laureates, key opinion leaders, policymakers, students, researchers, and the general public, UP says.

The Nobel Prize Dialogues were inspired by the Nobel Week Dialogue, which has been taking place in Sweden since 2012 on the day preceding the Nobel Prize award ceremony.
