Forthcoming CAGE Lecture: Violence and Social Orders: A Conceptual Framework for Interpreting Recorded Human History

Violence and Social Orders: A Conceptual Framework for Interpreting Recorded Human History

John Wallis (Professor of Economics, University of Maryland)
University of Warwick: 8 December 2011
Rm S.021, Social Sciences Building

We are pleased to welcome Professor John Wallis to give a lecture based on his new book ‘Violence and Social Orders: A Conceptual Framework for Interpreting Recorded Human History’ (John Wallis, Douglass North and Barry Weingast). This will be the fourth lecture in the CAGE Seminar Series on the Emerging World Economy.

In his lecture Professor Wallis will talk about the conceptual framework and how we can use it to analyse the transition from limited to open access societies in the west and to draw lessons for present-day societies that are still struggling with how to create a social order that supports economic growth and civil rights.

The lecture is free and open to all but spaces are limited. Please pre-register by email cage.centre@warwick.ac.uk
