Seminar Room, Humanities Graduate Centre, South West Engineering Building
Start time:12:00

The NRF/British Academy Research Chair in Political Theory, Professor Lawrence Hamilton, will host Professor Ian Shapiro to present this public lecture.

Shapiro will argue that the recent trends to decentralise decision-making and the governance of political parties in the name of enhanced democratic control have been self-defeating, and he proposes appropriate remedies.

Shapiro is Sterling Professor of Political Science and Henry R. Luce Director of the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale University.

He has written widely and influentially on democracy, justice, and the methods of social inquiry.
