Varieties of Authoritarian Reform: Democracy Avoidance in Developmental Asia

We are pleased to announce our next event of 2016, happening from 12:30 to 2:00 pm on Thursday, Mar 31 2016, at C.K. Choi Building. Our speaker is Dan Slater, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago. The motivating force behind his research is to explore and explain the social and historical foundations of political order, conflict, and accountability, especially in Southeast Asia. His first solo-authored book, Ordering Power: Contentious Politics and Authoritarian Leviathans in Southeast Asia, is a work of comparative-historical analysis covering seven Southeast Asian countries.
