Economic Shocks and Authoritarian Stability

Victor Shih will talk about his new book ‘Economic Shocks and Authoritarian Stability’, which is a new volume of edited essays that homes in on the economic challenges facing authoritarian regimes through a set of comparative case studies that include China and Taiwan. Through these comparative case studies, this volume provides readers with the analytical tools for assessing whether the current round of economic shocks will lead to political instability or even regime change among the world’s autocracies.
