Filtering Out Politics: The Failure of Planning in Latin America
Join us for our monthly Human Capital Initiative Speaker Series at the Global Development Policy Center. This month, we welcome Alisha Holland of Harvard University for a discussion on the failure of planning in Latin America.
Alisha Holland is an Associate Professor in the Government Department at Harvard University. Before joining the Harvard faculty, she was an Assistant Professor in the Politics Department at Princeton University and a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows. She studies the comparative political economy of development with a focus on urban politics, social policy, and Latin America. Her book, Forbearance as Redistribution: The Politics of Informal Welfare in Latin America (Cambridge Studies in Comparative Politics), looks at the politics of enforcement against property law violations by the poor, such as squatting, street vending, and electricity theft.
