This lecture examines the character and strategies of economic development in authoritarian regimes. It emphasizes state- business relations and the combination of neoliberal prescriptions, class, and institutions of authoritarian control.

Join us for a workshop that follows Professor Haddad's lecture. We will be continuing the discussion opened in that lecture by exploring the contemporary articulation of authoritarianism and neoliberalism in the Middle East, and exploring possible alternative futures.
