Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University. He is one of the world's top economists, well known for his original and prescient analyses of globalisation and economic development. The book The Globalization Paradox| is published by Oxford University Press this month.  Dani Rodrik will be signing copies at the event. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
