IAS Fellow's Public Lecture - Small States, Healthy Nations: on the political economy of Denmark, Ireland and Switzerland
Small and culturally homogeneous states feature prominently in indices of competitiveness within the world political economy. The lecture suggests that this is not an accident: the vulnerabilities which small nation-states face has led them to become stronger because both scale and cohesion encourage flexibility and resilience. An examination of the ways in which Denmark, Ireland and Switzerland managed the financial crisis that began in 2008 supports this view, not least when pointing to differences between the three cases.
This lecture is free and open to all.
