Description

Lecture topic: Populism & The Economics of Globalisation

Speaker: Professor Dani Rodrik (Harvard University)

Time: 18.30 - 20.30 (Lecture in the Edmond J Safra Lecture Theatre at 18.30, followed by reception in the Terrace Café at 19.45)

The Department of Political Economy (Faculty of Social Science & Public Policy, King’s College London) is delighted to announce that its fourth Annual Distinguished Lecture in Economics will be given on 14 November, 2017 by Professor Dani Rodrik, Ford Foundation Professor of International Political Economy at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Long perceived as one of the most perceptive and articulate commentators on the process of globalisation, Professor Rodrik’s lecture subject will be on “Populism & The Economics of Globalisation”.

For over twenty years, in such books as Has Globalisation Gone Too Far? and The Globalisation Paradox, Professor Rodrik has argued that the process of globalisation creates winners and losers, both among nations and between groups within nations. He has long warned that this creates the conditions for the kind of populist backlash currently manifesting itself in many of the world’s leading economies, and in his lecture, Professor Rodrik will show how the type of reaction in each country is influenced by its particular role in the global economy.

This is an open event, and we welcome internal and external participants.
