Start time:12:30

Professor Giampaolo Garzarelli from the School of Economic and Business Sciences at Wits will deliver this talk based on a paper.

The paper is a political economy study of state formation that answers the following question: When does internal exit stop being a theoretical (unlikely) scenario and concretely manifest? The hypothesis is that new state formation can occur through organisational split up given the concurrent presence of certain exogenous circumstances. Together, these circumstances help define the rational-choice problem faced, which endogenizes the size of the object being contested: population.
