Event summary: The Dudley Speers lecture 2021 will be held by Rohini Pande.

Since 2008, the Dudley Seers Lecture has been an inherent part of the EADI General Conferences. Remembering one of the founding members and the first EADI president, this lecture allows a renowned speaker to formally set the tone for the debates at and around the conference.

This year, the Dudley Seers Lecture, titled Mapping Power and Inequality: Institutions and Individuals, which precedes EADI’s upcoming General Conference “Solidarity, Peace and Social Justice” will be held by Rohini Pande, Henry J. Heinz II Professor of Economics and Director of the Economic Growth Center, Yale University.

Pande’s talk will explore how power structures – within households, communities and countries – are determined by informal and formal institutions. It will analyze how inequality of power and economic inequality interact within these institutions.
