Valeria Rueda investigates the historical determinants of spatial inequalities. She has devoted significant attention to the role of culture in shaping persistent development patterns.
Valeria Rueda's previous research studied different cases of cultural and institutional determinants of development. A first strand of research has looked into the role of early 20th century Christian missions in shaping different health and political outcomes in sub-Saharan Africa. A second strand has devoted attention to the 19th century Italian Unification, an unusual event of extremely rapid nation-building and dismantling of the ancien régime. This project looks at the role of Unification on the geographic distribution of economic activity.
