Event description

Description

Democratic accountability is widely considered to be a powerful force for economic and human development. Under the right incentives and institutions, elected leaders are responsive to citizens and can deliver better outcomes. Yet the operation of democratic accountability seems to face limitations across developing countries. Vote buying, repression, limited information for voters, clientelistic relationships, and weak institutions, among other factors, limit the role of accountability.

This one-day conference aims to bring together faculty and PhD students to present and discuss empirical papers that study the relationship between accountability and the political economy of development.

As faculty we have confirmed Miriam Golden (EUI/UCLA), Ana de la O (Yale), Saad Gulzar (Stanford), Julien Labonne (Oxford), Dan Berliner (LSE), Sergio Ascencio (NYU-AB), Luis Schiumerini (Notre Dame) and Sarah Brierley (Wash U.).
