PRFDHR Seminar: The Political Economics of Green Transitions, Professor Torsten Persson

Reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases may be almost impossible without a green transition - a process of radically changing consumption and production patterns. Professor Torsten Persson and his co-author Professor Timothy Besley, put forward a model where switches in consumption and production create a dynamic complementarity that can help or hinder a green transition. In democratic societies, governments cannot commit to future policy paths and must aggregate conflicting interests across different voters.

PRFDHR Seminar: Syrian Refugees in Jordan: Parental burnout, father engagement, and family cohesion during COVID-19, Professor Catherine Panter-Brick

How do men engage with their families in contexts of forced displacement? Engaging with men as fathers is important for sustaining initiatives that seek to build cultures of peace, equity, and social inclusion. It is also important for designing interventions that enhance family cohesion, mental health, and child development. Yet in research and policy, the “father factor” has been all too often ignored. Professor Catherine Panter-Brick begins this talk with a policy brief that gives concrete examples of community-level interventions engaging with fathers to build social change.

PRFDHR Seminar: What is Home? Stories of Belonging from the New Syrian Diaspora, Professor Wendy Pearlman

What is home? While of universal significance, this question gains special meaning in contexts of forced migration, as the violent dislodging of persons from their established moorings brings to the fore dynamics of home-making that are obscured in more settled circumstances. Syria is a particularly illustrative case due to the staggering speed and scope of the displacement of millions of people, as well as the unparalleled variety of experiences that they are having in nearly every country across the globe.

PRFDHR Seminar: Market Structure and Extortion: Evidence from 50,000 Extortion Payments in El Salvador, Professor María Micaela Sviatschi

How do gangs compete for extortion? Using detailed data on individual extortion payments to gangs and sales from a leading wholesale distributor of consumer goods and pharmaceuticals in El Salvador, Professor Sviatschi and her co-authors document evidence on the determinants of extortion payments and the effects of extortion on firms and consumers. They exploit a 2016 non-aggression pact between gangs to examine how collusion affects extortion in areas where gangs previously competed.
