Political Uncertainty, Market Structure, and the Forms of State Capture

Join the Global Development Program in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs as it hosts Leonard Wantchekon, a professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton.

Leonard Wantchekon is a Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University, as well as Associated Faculty in Economics. He has implemented pioneering studies on political institutions and governance, using field experiments with real politicians competing in real elections to investigate the effects of broad-based policy messages and deliberative campaign strategies on voting behavior and election outcomes. His current work along these lines applies the methodology of institutional experiments to study candidate selection in local elections, bureaucratic governance and the politics of education policies.

The event in the Klaus Building room 1116W is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the visitor lot 4. 

Lunch will be served, please RSVP
