Join LIVE our special #KAPTalks with Professor Francis Fukuyama of Stanford University who will discuss the role of political development for economic development, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will be fully online. Join us on 8th December at 17:00 CET / 16:00 GMT. The lecture is hosted by the Faculty of the Political Science and International Studies of the Warsaw University.

Beginning in the 1980s, development economists began to recognize the importance of institutions, through the work of economists like Douglass North. Early understandings of institutions, however, were very narrow, focusing on property rights and contract enforcement. By the early 2000s, the institutional agenda broadened to include "good governance and anti-corruption," but policy responses to achieve the latter have yielded disappointing results. This lecture will review this history and discuss why institutional reform is so difficult, with illustrations from the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The lecture marks the International Anti-Corruption Day (9th December).
