2014 ICSID Conference

‘Regional Heterogeneity and Incentives for Governance’

On May 29-31, 2014the International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development (ICSID, HSE) organizes the International Conference ‘Regional Heterogeneity and Incentives for Governance’in Pushkin, St. Petersburg.The conference will include the EACES-HSE workshop ‘Political Economy of Development: a Comparative Perspective’ that will take place on May 29, 2014.

The International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development (ICSID,http://iims.hse.ru/en/csid/) is one of the international laboratories created by the Higher School of Economics in 2011, and currently unites a team of researchers from Russia, USA and Europe.

The major goal of the conference is to bring together Russian and foreign experts in political economy and economic policy who have an interest in regional politics, bureaucracy, and property rights. We will focus largely, but not exclusively, on the Russian and Chinese experience in these areas. This topic is motivated by a rethinking of the substantive role of the state in developing economies, as well as the important role of regional heterogeneity and subnational economic and political processes for the successful realization of national programs of political development.

The 2014 conference will be the third annual event of its type organized by the International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development. In May 2012, we focused on  Douglass North et al.’s (2009) concept of  “limited access orders”, and discussed whether it was helpful for empirical analyses in developing countries (http://www.hse.ru/en/institutions/symposium_en). In June 2013, we gathered Russian and foreign experts in political economy to discuss new data and methods available to researchers of institutions and economic development (http://iims.hse.ru/en/csid/news/88659626.html). In 2014, we plan to continue our work on institutions and economic development, with a primary focus on the cases of Russia and China.

 

ICSID associates and partners taking part in the conference include:

  • Daniel Treisman (UCLA)
  • William Pyle (Middlebury college)
  • Thomas Remington (Emory University)
  • Alexander Libman (Frankfurt School of Finance and Management)
  • John Reuter (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Higher School of Economics)

  • James Kung (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology)
  • Masayuki Kudamatsu (Stockholm University)
