Thanks again to Khun Chol Bunnag for providing us with information about an exciting conference in Corsica this May! The European School on New Institutional Economics (ESNIE) will be holding its eighth session in Cargese (Corsica) from 18-22 May 2009. This school seeks to promote the use of rigorous methods to analyze the economics of institutions and organizations, to provide researchers and decision makers with up to date synthesis on the evolutions of the research program, to develop networking and cooperation among researchers and among their institutions.
It is dedicated to Ph.D. students, Post-docs and researchers in Economics, Management Sciences, Sociology, Law and other social sciences. They will benefit from lectures (every morning) dedicated to the extensive presentation of the state of the art of the discipline on a specific applied or theoretical topic, workshops (afternoon) devoted either to “research questions” or “technical topics”, and seminars (second part of the afternoon) that will allow the attendants to have their work discussed by specialised scholars in the field.
Distinguished lecturers who will be present at this event include Kenneth Binmore (U. College London), Antonio Estache (ECARES, Université Libre de Bruxelles), John de Figueiredo (UCLA), Florencio Lopez-de-Silanes (EDHEC), Peter Maskell (Copenhagen Business School), Scott Masten (U. of Michigan), Peter Murrell (U. of Maryland), Jackson Nickerson (Washington U. in St. Louis), John Wallis (U. of Maryland).
