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.

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.

    you see,….even with the deadline extended, the organizers are uncapable (or unable) to follow their own new calendar. We are two days after the final deadline to divulgate the papers and we don’t have news.

    it’s ironic how people that like to study institutions don’t pay attention to this…

    my expectations with the meeting are lower than when I’ve read this post and submitted my paper.

    Anyway, thanks for calling my attention to this – at that time – very exciting event in Brazil, my not-so-good country when the talk is about institutions….
