Professor Jean-Paul Faguet, Programme Co-Director for Development Management, tells us what he has been up to during his sabbatical.

jp_rockHello and happy new year from Los Andes!

I visited the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for a month this past Oct-Nov, where I revised “The Paradox of Land Reform, Inequality and Development in Colombia” and presented to their comparative working group, and also researched and wrote “Revolution from Below: The Rise of Local Politics and the Fall of Bolivia’s Party System”, and presented that to the Joint Duke-UNC Latin American politics working group.

In December I was in Colombia for the Universidad de los Andes-LSE International Workshop on the Future of the Peace Process in Colombia, where I organized a roundtable discussion on “Inequality and Development in the Long Run”.

This term I’ll be visiting Los Andes again in Jan-Feb, and then in Stanford this April-May co-hosting the first annual LSE-Stanford Conference on Long Range Development in Latin America.  This last will become an annual event alternating between California and London (and hopefully Bogotá and Mexico) that ID research students are especially encouraged to submit papers to.

See you in the new academic year!

    The Covid-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc for economies worldwide, and smaller countries have been hit particularly badly.

  • Bangladesh @ 50: Challenges to Inclusion
    While we celebrate Bangladesh’s achievements in economic growth and poverty reduction, a growth-focused strategy does not serve Bangabandhu’s vision for an egalitarian society as it excludes and neglects many citizens. As Bangladesh’s economy thrives, Mathilde Maitrot and Joe Devine’s research finds there are persistent pockets of extreme poverty, some of which are getting worse, and […]
