Project description

The tribuni plebis are central in understanding the political power of socio-political groups in Roman society. They had massive influence in the late Republic, and are often linked with the transformation into the Principate. My study will provide a more correct image of them through the use of a socio-political methodology, based on principal-agent analysis and models of social conflict.
