2020 year recipient of The Jan Söderberg Family Prize in Economics and Management

Professor Nathan Nunn is the second recipient of The Jan Söderberg Family Prize in Economics and Management. He asks questions such as: Why are societies and cultures different? Why are some more economically successful than others?

In his research, Nunn examines the effects that historical events and factors have on subsequent societal outcomes. The quantitative analysis includes the use of historical data, often from archival sources, or anthropological fieldwork, which are then linked to later outcomes.

The prize was awarded during a digital ceremony by the School of Economics and Management on 24 March 2021.
