Do elected and appointed officials favor particular groups of citizens, and if so, which ones? Which officials, at which ranks, can direct public resources towards favored groups? How is favoritism exercised in authoritarian contexts, and how is it exercised in democratic contexts, where officials are accountable to voters? 

Please join The Pearson Institute in welcoming Quoc-Anh Do, Professor of Economics at SciencesPo in Paris. In his lecture, Professor Do will speak on the political economy of favoritism in countries around the world, exploring the issues of "who gets what, when, how" that are so central to the study of governance.
