The International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development (ICSID) led by Andrei Yakovlev and Timothy M. Frye brings together Russian and foreign experts in economics and political science. Researchers at the Center come from the Institute for Industrial and Market Studies (IIMS) of the National Research University Higher School of Economics and the Harriman Institute (Columbia University) as well as the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Emory University, Middlebury College and UCLA. The Center, which was established in 2011 thanks to a generous grant from Russian government cooperates closely with other HSE institutes and departments, including the Department of Economics, and the Laboratory for the Institutional Analysis of Economic Reforms.

Scholars at ICSID are currently implementing the research project “Factors of career trajectories of bureaucratic elites, informal institutions, and provision of public goods” which is the Center’s major project for 2014-2016. The main objectives of the project are to study the incentives for strengthening regional governance, improving the quality of formal and informal institutions, and developing research on public goods provision and property rights protection. We concentrate mostly on Russia, but compare it with other countries and have started to expand our research to China.

The main research directions for the period 2014-2016 are:
