Presentation: The composition and quality of the political class has long been an issue of great concern in all democracies. Several recent studies have documented that the quality of politicians varies significantly across countries, and that part of this variation is related to differences in both political and economic institutions. These considerations raise the following important questions: Who wants to be a politician and why? How do monetary incentives and other features of the political-economic environment affect the quality of politicians and their career paths?
The goal of this workshop is to bring together a group of young researchers who are currently working on the most recent theoretical and empirical advances on the topic of political selection.
