The Liechtenstein Institute on Self-Determination will co-sponsor a lunch seminar, "Does Development Aid Improve State Capacity? The Impact of EU Funding on Local Government Capabilities in Poland," on Wednesday, March 4, 2020, at 12:15 p.m., in 023 Robertson Hall, with Jan Vogler, doctoral research associate in the political economy of good government at the University of Virginia's Woodrow Wilson Department of Politics. The event is organized by and co-sponsored with the European Union Program at Princeton.

Jan Vogler recently completed his Ph.D. in political science–with a specialization in political economy and political methodology. As of fall 2019, he will be a post-doctoral research associate in the political economy of good government at the University of Virginia's Woodrow Wilson Department of Politics. His research covers a wide range of topics, including the organization of public bureaucracies, various forms of political and economic competition (in domestic and international settings), the legacies of imperial rule, and structures and perceptions of the European Union. In his dissertation, he analyzes the determinants of cross-national and cross-regional variation in the institutions and performance of public administration by considering the impact of historical events and processes.
