The East Asian Studies Program, in collaboration with the Center for the Study of Asia, present Atul Kohli, David K. E. Bruce Professor of International Affairs and Professor of Politics at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University, and Joseph Fewsmith, Professor of International Relations at Boston University. The speakers will address the following questions: How do political regimes influence development? How does economic growth challenge political governance? In India and China, economic liberalization since 1980 has created some of the fastest growth stories in the developing world. Both countries, however, are facing political and social crises that challenge the sustainability of growth and the states’ capacity to govern the nations. What are these crises? What are the root causes? How can the rulers of the countries deal with these crises? Please email lbpuyat@bu.edu to register.
