Speaker(s): Professor Claus Offe
Chair: Professor Ken Shadlen
Recorded on 5 June 2014 in New Theatre, East Building.

Claus Offe is a professor of theories of the state at Hertie School of Governance, Berlin.
Ken Shadlen is a professor in development studies in the Department of International Development at LSE.
