Cracking the Nest Egg: Reversing Pension Reforms Around the World

Dec. 7, 2018, 10:30am-12:00pm (registration required)
Isobe Room, The Fletcher School, Tufts University, 160 Packard Ave., Medford, MA

Join The Fletcher School at Tufts University for a talk with Sarah Wilson Sokhey on pension politics in Russia. Her talk will draw on research from her recent book, "The Political Economy of Pension Policy Reversal in Post-Communist Countries," which won the 2018 Ed A. Hewett Book Prize for an outstanding publication on the political economy of Russia, Eurasia and Eastern Europe. In this book, she examines the global trend in the reversal of a radical pension policy using survival analysis, survey data and case studies of the Russian, Polish and Hungarian experiences. Her work lends insight into how and why major policy reversals occur in a wide variety of contexts. Brunch will be provided. Registration can be found at this link.
