The lecture will be chaired by LSE’s Max Nathan, who specialises on the economics of cultural diversity, in particular the performance of diverse cities, communities and teams. Nathan is also interested in innovation systems and clusters, and in wider public policy for cities, especially policy design and evaluation.
