The Rise of Western Democracy: Why it Happened in Europe and Not China or the Middle East

Professor Stasavage will be presenting work from his exciting new book project that explores the history of government by consent in a global setting, charting the long rise of democracy in Europe in comparison with China, the Middle East, and other world regions.

A sandwich lunch will be available at the session and is booked according to numbers. If you would like to order lunch for this session, please reply to no later than noon on Friday 2nd June.
