Workshop "Quality of Governance and the Legacy of Socialism" in Bremen

The joint workshop organized by ICSID and the University of Bremen on "Quality of Governance and the Legacy of Socialism" will be held for the first time from 25 to 26 October 2019

The working groups of Michael Rochlitz and Jutta Günther – both closely connected to Higher School of Economics Moscow – will organise the event. The workshop will take an interdisciplinary perspective on questions such as leadership, corruption, education, public opinion, and their relation to economic development in post-socialist countries. It will also give a chance to present current research about East Germany and its long way to converge with West Germany (Mod-Block-DDR project). Well known keynote speakers are invited from Kings College London (Gulnaz Sharafutdinova) and from the University of Gothenburg (Marina Nistotskaya).
