    MISTRA 5th Annual Lecture

    Venue: University of Johannesburg

     March 16 2016

    "State and business in post-colonial societies: what lessons can South Africa draw from the contrasting experiences of India and South Korea?"
    Presented by Prof Vivek Chibber
    MISTRA 5th Annual Lecture to be held on 16 March 2016 at the University of Johannesburg

    The Mapungubwe Institute takes great pleasure in hosting Prof Vivek Chibber for its 5th Annual Lecture, in partnership with the University of Johannesburg.

    Born in Delhi in India, Professor Chibber obtained his PhD through the University of Wisconsin in the United States, and currently holds tenure as a Professor at New York University. He has published widely, with his most recent book Postcolonial Theory and the Spectre of Capital sparking widespread debate on post-colonial theories and approaches.

    His previous work Locked in Place: State Building and Late Industrialisation in India will be of particular interest to South Africa, with specific reference to the role of the state and the capacities required of it to provide leadership to national development, the imperatives of state transformation in post-colonial societies and the constraints that face small open economies such as South Africa.

    Details of the Annual Lecture are as follows:

    • Venue: University of Johannesburg, Bunting Road Campus, FADA Auditorium
    • Date: 16 March 2016
    • Time: 18h30 for 19h00
