While it is well known that needed reforms can be difficult to implement, it is also true that even relatively successful reforms can generate a backlash. In this event and building on two comprehensive chapters recently published in the Palgrave Handbook of Comparative Economics (see the flyer), co-edited by late Prof. Oleh Havrylyshyn, we will discuss some of the factors that can impact policy preferences and support for reforms in the wider population.
