How has globalization developed over the past 30 years? What are its political implications? In this year’s University of Essex Government Regius lecture, “The Politics of Globalization: The World Economy and Domestic Politics,” Helen Milner, the B. C. Forbes Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University, tackled these very questions. In the lecture, Milner focuses in particular on the interaction between domestic political systems and global economic flows, especially in democracies. Interested in finding out more?

In 2013, the Essex Department of Government was awarded a prestigious Regius Professorship by the Queen in honor of the department’s 50 years of excellence in research and education. To celebrate this honor, the department’s annual Regius lecture invites a world-class scholar in political science to come to Essex to present their work to the university community. The inaugural Regius lecture was given by prestigious political scientist Professor Gary King from Harvard University and explored censorship in China.
SAGE Publishing sponsored this year’s lecture as part of our wider collaboration with Essex University. In 2016, SAGE announced that it has partnered with the Essex Summer School to sponsor its workshops on Social Science Data Analysis and this extended interaction is an important extension of this, not only engaging with changing methodological skills, but also supporting platforms for debate and building awareness of the influential role that the social sciences play within our wider community.
