Мероприятие завершено

The College of Humanity and Social Sciences (CHSS) at UAE University together with International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development (ICSID) at National Research University - Higher School of Economics are pleased to invite submissions to the workshop:

Political Economy of Development: Challenges and Perspectives

Understanding the root causes of economic growth and well-being stands among the most fascinating and important topics in the social sciences. A large body of literature demonstrates the importance of a variety of factors including technologies, institutions, human capital, culture, and decisions of political elites. We know a lot about the developed world, but there is still lack of understanding of developing and transition countries, especially those countries with non-Western European historical and cultural background. The workshop aims at bridging this gap by bringing together scholars of post-communist political economy with scholars working on the Middle East, other fields, and other regions.

The workshop will take place at UAE University, Al Ain, Abu Dhabi region, UAE on October 30-31, 2018 with a special session on November 1 in NYU Abu Dhabi.The event is going to attract leading researchers from the world top universities, including Thomas Remington(Emory University, HSE and Harvard University), Koen Schoors (Ghent University) and Andrei Yakovlev (HSE) as keynote speakers.

A supplementary workshop session will focus on political economy and related topics in Russia and other post-communist countries in comparative perspective. This session will involve intensive discussion held at NYU Abu Dhabi on November 1, 2018.

Contributions from the fields of political economy, sociology, economics and political science are invited. We welcome submissions that adopt empirical qualitative or quantitative research designs and that can offer useful perspectives on important challenges in political economy of development.

Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:
- Historical determinants of development
- Incentives in governance systems
- Public policy and economic development;
- Cultural factors of development
- Human capital and economic development
- Public goods and collective actions
