About this event

The annual LSE Political Science and Political Economy lecture brings together political scientists and economists to discuss recent contributions, both theoretical and empirical, to the study of institutions, political behaviour and related social phenomena.

An economist and political scientist, James Robinson has conducted influential research in the field of political and economic development and the relationships between political power and institutions and prosperity. His work explores the underlying causes of economic and political divergence both historically and today and uses both the mathematical and quantitative methods of economics along with the case study, qualitative and fieldwork methodologies used in other social sciences.
