São Paulo Workshop on Institutions and Organizations
| Peter Klein |
See below for information on the Third Research Workshop on Institutions and Organizations, 13-14 October 2008 at Fundação Getúlio Vargas in Brazil. Session topics include “Organizations, law and corruption,” “Institutions and development,” “Institutions and environment,” “Psychological issues and organization strategies,” and “Industrial and competition policy.”
I participated in last year’s conference and enjoyed it tremendously. There is a growing network of Brazilian researchers working on various topics in the New Institutional Economics. It is a good group to be involved with.
III RESEARCH WORKSHOP
ON “INSTITUTIONS AND ORGANIZATIONS”
October 13th – 14th 2008
Call for papers
The III Research Workshop on Institutions and Organizations will be held at Fundação Getúlio Vargas (FGV-SP) from October 13th to 14th 2008. The III RWIO is sponsored by three Brazilian Academic Institutions (Fundação Getúlio Vargas São Paulo, IBMEC São Paulo and University of São Paulo).
Seminar participants will discuss recent developments in the analysis of institutions and organizations through the lenses of Economics, Management, Sociology, Law and other social sciences. Instead of focusing on the contributions of specific disciplines dealing with institutions and organizations, workshop participants will emphasize differences and commonalities among different approaches, leading to potential advances and refinements in the field.
We encourage the participation of researchers of Brazilian and international institutions. The following program is based on both invited and selected papers.
The organizational committee invites the submission of papers to the following the topics:
Panel I: Organizations, law and corruption
Panel II: Institutions and Development
Panel III: Institutions and environment
Panel IV: Psychological issues and organization strategies
Panel V: Industrial and competition policy
*More details about the panels will be announced soon.
