The Laboratory for Institutional Analysis of Economic Reforms (LIA), State University — Higher School of Economics announces the call for papers for Russian Summer School on Institutional Economics 2009. The Summer School is aimed to create and support the academic network of young researchers from all regions of Russia as well as from CIS and other countries, those whose research interests include economics and sociology of education and economic systems’ institutional structure and development. The most outstanding papers will be considered for publication in the journals published by HSE and in LIA preprint series.


Among those who are encouraged to participate are researchers, teaching staff, PhD and Master students, whose research projects are related to economic and sociological analysis of institutions and their influence on economic growth. The papers on economics and sociology of higher education will have a priority. The working language of the Summer School is Russian but as there will be some lectures in English, understanding English is highly desirable.  The RSSIA 2009 participants obtain the opportunity:
