Thursday, September 28, 2017 — 4:30 PM to 7:00 PM EDT

Uneven Growth and Social Conflict

Lecture presented by Professor Debraj Ray, New York University

Economic growth can be extraordinarily rapid in developing countries. But it is often uneven, leaving whole segments of society behind. Such unevenness can serve to both inspire and frustrate, and so lead to social conflict even as overall economic conditions improve. These issues are crucially important in North America and Europe today.

Professor Debraj Ray, visiting from New York University, will discuss what we can learn about the uneven-growth/conflict nexus from developing countries, where such issues have never been far from the surface.

The lecture will take place at 4:30 - 6:00pm in the Hagey Hall Humanities Theatre. A light reception will follow, 6:00 - 7:00pm in the Environment 1 (EV1) Courtyard.
