Dan Banik is directing a workshop on the relationship between democracy and poverty as part of the third international conference on Democracy as Idea and Practice, organised by the Research Programme on Democracy.

In this workshop, we wish to question whether certain regimes are better able and equipped to promote economic growth and eradicate poverty than others. In other words, what characterizes the relationship between poverty and democracy? And is there a connection between 'pro-poorness' and 'democracy'?

All are welcome, but we encourage you to register!
