Professor David Held, co-director of LSE's Centre for the Study of Global Governance, will give a public lecture at LSE Economics on Wednesday 1 November.
He will explore one of the greatest paradoxes of our time: that is, that the challenges we face are increasingly global in their form and scope and yet our political capacity is weak and diminishing. The lecture explores both the advantages globalisation has brought and the serious structural vulnerability it has created.
David Held is Graham Wallas Professor of Political Science at LSE and co-director of LSE's Centre for the Study of Global Governance. His recent publications include Models of Democracy, third edition and Debating Globalization.
Professor Michael Cox, LSE, will chair this event.
