In its eighth year, this annual summer workshop is run by the International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development (ICSID) at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow together with the European Association for Comparative Economic Studies (EACES). For information on past workshops see here and here.
We adopt a broad understanding of political economy and welcome submissions that can offer useful perspectives on recent developments in the field as well as those that offer a historical or comparative perspective.
The working language for the workshop is English. The workshop will be held in the central HSE campus at Myasnitskaya st., 20, Moscow.
To participate in the workshop, please submit a paper abstract of up to 250 words (or a draft paper), together with a short CV, to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 22nd, 2019. Applicants will be informed about their selection by March 18th, and the authors of accepted proposals are expected to submit full papers by May 20th.
Once you have received an acceptance to the workshop, please send a CV and abstract to Timothy Frye, email@example.com.
ICSID will provide you with an invitation necessary to apply for a visa at a Russian consulate of your choosing. Since issuing an invitation for a visa may take up to 4 weeks we would be grateful if you could apply in advance.
ICSID can also assist in finding accommodation at one of the HSE Guest Houses or hotels during your stay in Moscow. Please note that HSE Guest House room availability is not guaranteed, therefore early requests are appreciated. ICSID does not, however, cover travel or accommodation expenses.
