Lecture: Origins of Political Order by Prof. Francis Fukuyama, Jan. 22 2014 @ Strathmore Business School
Prof. Francis Fukuyama, one of the World’s Top 100 Thinkers and political scientist who has been referred to as one of the leading public intellectuals of our time will deliver a lecture based on his most recent book, ‘The Origins of Political Order,’ at Strathmore Business School on Wednesday, 22nd January 2013 from 5:30pm.
The lecture will provide a sweeping account of how today’s basic political institutions were developed and why we continue to live in a world where democracy, prosperity and law and order are unevenly distributed. Prof. Fukuyama will concentrate on the problem of democratic order and will seek to address the reason why some societies have gone down the democratic route to stability while others have remained stuck with autocracy.
The lecture which has been organized by the Strathmore Business School’s Center for Public Policy and Competitiveness in collaboration with the Leadership Academy of Development, an affiliate of the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced and International Studies will further explore the provenance of three basic political institutions – the state, the rule of law, and accountability – that constitute the basis for modern government.
