Lydia Assouad


Between January 2024 and June 2025, I will be on leave from the LSE where I am an Assistant Professor of Economics in the Department of International Development, and I will be an Academy Scholar at the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies.

My research interests lie at the intersection of development economics, political economy, and economic history, with a particular focus on the Middle East.
