President of Peru to speak at LSE

The President of Peru Dr Alejandro Toledo will be speaking on Governance and Economic Rationality at the London School of Economics and Political Science on Friday 6 December.

Dr Toledo will give a public lecture to students, staff and guests on Peru, its economy and future developments. Chairing the event will be Professor Anthony Giddens, LSE Director.

An economist, Dr Toledo became president in July 2001. He studied economics at the University of San Francisco, and then took a master's and a PhD at Stanford University in the US. He has written a number of books, including his last work which traced his political career with the Peru Posible party.

The lecture is being organised as part of the LSE's Global Dimensions programme. Previous Global Dimensions speakers have included Bill Clinton, 42nd president of the USA; Poul Nyrup Rasmussen, former Danish prime, and Kofi Annan, secretary-general of the United Nations.
