Pathways to Freedom: Political and Economic Lessons from Democratic Transitions

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

The Bark Room (Orientation Room), Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 2 West 13th Street, Room M101, New York, NY 10011

Join Dr. Terra Lawson-Remer, assistant professor of International Affairs at the Julian J. Studley Graduate Program in International Affairs, as she discusses her new book Pathways to Freedom: Political and Economic Lessons from Democratic Transitions.

Many developing countries have launched transitions from authoritarianism to democracy over the past 25 years. While some have succeeded in building relatively strong democracies with shared prosperity, other have stumbled. With concise historical analysis and forward looking prescriptions, Pathways to Freedom offers an authoritative and accessible look at what countries must do to build durable and prosperous democracies - and what the United States and others can do to help.

With discussion and commentary by Dr. Lawson-Remere and Dr. David Plotke, professor of Political Science at The New School for Social Research.
