2019 Human Development Conference

(part of a series)

Hcd2019 Logo 600x400

Engaging with Empathy: a preferential option for the poor in development

The poor, according to Amartya Sen’s Capability Approach, consist of individuals who are deprived of basic freedoms such as education, political power, and other capabilities that allow individuals to achieve full lives that they have reason to value. This approach broadens the definition of poverty beyond traditional terms of financial power to recognize a multitude of “unfreedoms” which hinder upward movement in society. Historically, marginalized individuals most affected by policy changes are often ignored in the decision-making process in the development arena.

Lecture: "Shadows of the Past: The Democratic Legacies of Authoritarian Parties"

-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

Perspectives World Politics Logo Kellogg19 600x400

Sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. A World Politics Series lecture by Allen Hicken.

The literature on party and party system institutionalization focuses on party institutionalization as a function of democratic factors. But more than half of authoritarian regimes from 1950 to 2006 had at least one political party. Hicken, drawing on a paper co-authored with Darin Self of Cornell University, investigates the extent to which the institutional environment under authoritarian rule shapes party competition and institutionalization after a democratic transition.…

Lecture: "Before Brexit: English Legal History – the View from the Continent"

-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

Herzog 500

Sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. A lecture by Tamar Herzog, Monroe Gutman Professor of Latin American Affairs, Harvard UniversityLong before the 2016 vote to leave the European Union, the perception that Britain was substantially different from other European countries was relatively widespread. This perception was based, at least partially, on the conviction that English law was radically different from Continental Roman Civil law. Herzog, however, argues that these conclusions are based on misconceptions: If we looked at England from the Continent, what would we see?…

Lecture: "Winning the Fight Against Inequality (and Why it Needs You)"

-

Location: Hesburgh Center

Sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. A lecture by visiting fellow Ben Phillips. The results of rising inequality are many: It holds back progress on poverty, widens mistrust and instability, exacerbates violent conflict, and delays action on climate change, among other consequences.
