For this session Why Nations Fail: The Origin of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty, by Damon Acemoglu and James A. Robinson (see https://www.amazon.in/Why-Nations-Fail-Origins- Prosperity/dp/1846684307/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1505266268&sr=8-1&keywords=why+nations+fail) has been selected as reading.
The IEL is opened by a brief introduction by Dr. Roberto Orsi, then the particular book of the evening will be discussed by all participants. Finally, participants exchange their ideas and proposals about the book to read for the next meeting.
This IEL has been organised in the form of Book Club, in order to expand the intellectual horizon of GSDM students, by means of making them approach literary works and other books which can relate to the main topics of GSDM, particularly leadership, global affairs, inter-disciplinarity.
