1.1 Message from the President


 


 

 

Expert Image

Dear EACES members,

 


I trust you have all had a productive and enjoyable term. I hope that for many of you, the most arduous part of the academic year in terms of teaching is now over, and you can focus your attention more on research. There are certainly a number of major economic issues within our field that merit careful study.

 

Your Association continues to prosper, with seminars and workshops around Europe, all of them advertised in this newsletter. I hope that you have been able to participate, especially in events that take place relatively near to you. We remain very keen to support serious academic initiatives, so that if you have ideas for future workshops or conferences, please do not hesitate to contact me or members of the EACES Board.

 

We held a Board Meeting of the Association with a Workshop in Brussels last February, which gave us an opportunity to reflect on the lessons from our biannual conference in Budapest, as well as to express our thanks once again to our local organiser, now our Vice President, Magdolna Sass. We also took the opportunity to develop our thoughts for the next biannual conference, which will be held at Regensburg in Germany in 2016.  The local organiser is Juergen Jerger who has already developed quite careful plans for what already promises to be an excellent Conference.

 

However, we have an important event taking place rather sooner than 2016!  This summer, between June 25th and 27th, the eight Associations of Comparative Economic Systems around the world will be holding the first World Congress of Comparative Economic Systems in Rome. The fact that this major event is taking place at all is to a significant extent due to the work of our former President, Marcello Signorelli, to whom we owe a great debt of gratitude. The programme is now taking shape. There will be a keynote address by Professor Avner Grief of Stanford University.  There will be two further plenary sessions, about Institutions and Emerging Markets respectively. The Congress also promises to be one of the most exciting and stimulating events in our field in many years, with more than 300 papers accepted for presentations, and likely to be based around 11 parallel sessions. I strongly urge you, if you have not already done, to register for the Congress. 

 

Looking forward to meeting you all at one of our seminars or Workshops, or perhaps in Rome this summer.

6.  AoB

 

1) The board thanked MS (conference organiser) for her excellent job. MS discussed some final figures: 140 participants from 20 countries (e.g. Hungary, Japan, Russia, Italy, Serbia, France –to be improved though-, UK, Belgium, Spain, Poland, CZ, etc.), this is above the 110/120 breakeven threshold; very good feedback from participants; EACES has benefitted from financial support from the Hungary Academy of Science. The board discussed some potential lessons for the future:

 

a. The role of activate the network within the EACES members/board for future events;

 

b. Maintain a sufficient selection of high quality papers but also allow for young scholars contributions (less polished papers);

 

c. Maintain the “organised panel sections”, which proved to be very popular;

 

d. Use of “Inomics” web-advertisement (https://inomics.com/) for the EACES 2016 University of Regensburg Conference;

 

e. The “reduced fee” option could attract lower income (but very good) presenters;

 

f. Announcement of special issue (e.g. ES, EoT, JCE, etc.) at EACES bi-annual conferences could be a very good incentive

 

2)  The First World Congress of Comparative Economics: June 2015 in Rome. The organising committee is in constant contact with other international associations and they are all making good progress. Name for potential keynotes: Avner Greif, Jonas Kornai, J. Stiglitz.

 

3)  EACES 2016 University of Regensburg Conference. JJ has reported on the organisation, which is going according to plan. The board has tentatively discussed the conference theme: “Institutional and Economic Development” or “Comparative Economic Development and Institutions: a long term perspective”. Potential names as keynotes: Wolfgang Keller, Josef Brada, Gerard Roland, Leszek Balcerowicz.

 

4)  Other Forthcoming Events

 

a. AY report on: HSE April 2015 PhD Workshop: EACES-HSE PhD Seminar on 'Comparative Economic Studies: Country and Regional Level'. In cooperation with the European Association for Comparative Economic Studies (EACES). The seminar is going to take place during the April Conference on Economic and Social Development at the Higher School of Economics, held in Moscow from April 7 to April 10, 2015. Marcello Signorelli, (Professor of University of Perugia in Italy, President of EACES in 2010-2012) and Jun Du (Reader at Aston Business School, UK) will be the distinguished keynote speakers.

 

b. AY report on: EACES-HSE Workshop, June 29-July 1, 2015, Moscow Call for Papers in cooperation with the European Association for Comparative Economic Studies (EACES), the International Centre for the Study of Institutions and Development at the Higher School of Economics (ICSID) in Moscow is pleased to invite submissions to the following workshop: Political Economy of Development: New Challenges and Perspectives”

 

c. IV reports on: forthcoming fall event in Serbia on Monetary Policy, Finance and Credit. This will be a policy oriented event possibility comparing the Hungarian and Polish experiences of the financial crisis and the role of banking supervision from the ECB.

 

5)  AoB: the management board will compile summary stats on conference participations in previous editions of the EACES bi-annual conferences.

2.3 4th ICSID Conference, Moscow, Higher School of Economics, June 30th – July 1st, 2015

 

 

‘Institutions, Elites and Collective Action in the Developing World’

 

International Centre for the Study of Institutions and Development (ICSID, http://iims.hse.ru/en/csid/) is one of the international laboratories created by the Higher School of Economics in 2011 and currently unites a team of researchers from Russia, USA and Europe.

 

The major goal of this event is to bring together Russian and foreign scientists in the fields of political economy, and economic and institutional development and stimulate the exchange of research results, ideas and knowledge. We will focus on the incentives for bureaucrats, collective action problems in Russian society, federal and regional elite networks in Russia and China, social capital outcomes and prerequisites as well as changes in the system of values and norms in Russia and other developing countries.

 

The 2015 conference will be the 4th annual event of its type organized by the International Centre for the Study of Institutions and Development. In May 2012, we focused on Douglass North et al.’s (2009) concept of “limited access orders”, and discussed whether it was helpful for empirical analyses in developing countries

(http://www.hse.ru/en/institutions/symposium_en).

 

In June 2013, we gathered Russian and foreign experts in political economy to discuss new data and methods available to researchers of institutions and economic development (http://www.hse.ru/en/institutions/conference_2013_en). In May 2014, we continued our discussion of institutions and regional economic development, with a primary focus on the cases of Russia and China (http://www.hse.ru/en/institutions/III). In 2015, we are planning to broaden the basis for comparative analysis and cover the aspects of institutions development and political economy in the developing world.

Main conference topics include (preliminary):

 

Furthermore, we are planning to invite leading experts on institutions, governance and development in Russia and developing countries to participate in the event. Conference working language is English. The conference will take place at the central HSE campus at Myasnitskaya St., 20, Moscow.

 

For invited speakers, we cover travel costs (economy class) and provide accommodation at the conference hotel (NB both tickets and check-in/check-out dates should be within the period of the event +/- 1 day). ICSID will provide you with an invitation necessary to apply for a visa at a Russian consulate of your choosing. Since invitation issue may take up to 4 weeks we will appreciate if you apply in advance.

IV. International Scholarly Conference

 

                 

 

EUROPE, 1945: LIBERATION, OCCUPATION, RETRIBUTION

 

2-4 June 2015, Moscow

 

 

Organisers

International Centre for the History and Sociology of World War II and Its Consequences National Research University – Higher School of Economics (Moscow) and Friedrich Ebert Foundation with additional support from Franco-Russian Research Centre (Moscow) and Blavatnik Family Foundation

 

The Theme of the Conference

Nineteen forty-five was a time for beginnings and settling scores. For some, the arrival of the Red Army meant freedom from German rule and new opportunities under Soviet rule. Others feared a new occupation and the costs of their actions under the German regime. The aftermath of occupation and often-vengeful liberation had long-ranging consequences, creating new power dynamics and animosities that reverberate in the memory of the war seventy years later.

 

Historians have learned a great deal in the last decade about the war and its aftermath, and studies especially about the war on the Eastern front have greatly expanded our knowledge. However, the burgeoning literature on occupation and liberation remains fragmented, crying out for greater synthetic interpretation. “Europe, 1945: Occupation, Liberation, Retribution” is intended to bring together scholars working on path-breaking aspects of World War II in order to create such new syntheses and interpretations. The goal of this international conference is to foster cross-country and cross-regional comparisons while introducing new sources and perspectives on the shift from occupation liberation.

 

The title “Europe, 1945” is not intended to impose a narrow chronological perspective on the conference papers. Rather, “1945” serves as a metaphor for the moment of liberation and the advent of the post-war order. In some territories not far west of Moscow, the end of German occupation and re-Sovietization came as early as 1942; in other areas, such as western Ukraine, armed conflict continued after 1945. But all areas experienced a common shift from the wartime order to the post-war world, and analysing this transition is the conference’s main objective. We are especially interested in how the triple combination of Stalinism, German occupation, and the re-establishment of Soviet rule affected one another, both through interaction and repudiation.

 

The conference hopes to attract papers related but not limited to the following topics:

- Commonalities and local differences in the experience of occupation

- The Red Army’s experience in Europe

- Local populations’ interaction with Soviet power

- Lived experience in the transition from occupation to liberation

- The intelligentsia under German and Soviet rule

- Collaboration under occupation and as political category after the war

- The Holocaust as a part of Soviet liberation

- The fate of prisoners and displaced peoples

- Cultural and social memory of occupation and liberation

- Entanglements among pre-war, wartime, and post-war phenomena

 

The Centre for the History of World War II invites paper proposals that address issues of occupation and liberation in Central and Eastern Europe, including territories of the Soviet Union. The conference organizers welcome papers that examine the political, social and cultural ramifications of occupation and liberation in the war. Papers can explore conference themes with an emphasis on the period 1939 to 1948. While the conference will give preference to papers that investigate areas where the Red Army was active, it will consider papers addressing other areas in Eastern and Central Europe.

 

The working languages of the conference will be Russian and English.

 

The organizers will assist international participants with obtaining visa invitations to Russia. Meals (coffee breaks, lunches) will be provided. The conference organizers have limited funds to cover (partially or in full) participants’ airfare and accommodation costs for the duration of the conference. We ask prospective participants who will need financial assistance to indicate this in their submissions.

Visiting Researchers Programme

 


The International Centre for the Study of Institutions and Development (ICSID) led by Andrei Yakovlev and Timothy M. Frye brings together Russian and foreign experts in economics and political science. Researchers at the Centre come from the Institute for Industrial and Market Studies (IIMS) of the National Research University Higher School of Economics and the Harriman Institute (Columbia University) as well as the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Emory University, Middlebury College and UCLA. The Centre, which was established in 2011 thanks to a generous grant from Russian government, cooperates closely with other HSE institutes and departments, including the Department of Economics and the Laboratory for the Institutional Analysis of Economic Reforms.

 

Scholars at ICSID are currently implementing the research project “Incentives for Bureaucracy, Property Rights Protection and Public Goods Provision” which is the Centre’s major project for 2014-2016. The main objectives of the project are to study the incentives for strengthening regional governance, improving the quality of formal and informal institutions, and developing research on public goods provision and property rights protection. We concentrate mostly on Russia, but compare it with other countries and have started to expand our research to China.

 

The main research directions for the period 2014-2016 are:

     Collective action

     Incentives for bureaucracy in Russia and China

     Social capital in Russia

     Political elites and economic performance in Russia 

     Social policy in Russia

 

More detailed description of the research directions could be found here.

 

Overall ICSID has two types of visiting researchers programs: one with a scholarship and one without. Both of them enable researchers to spend a period of time conducting research at ICSID. The Centre accepts applicants who can make a compelling case regarding how their presence and work will complement our research projects as well as enhance ICSID’s research profile. We value applications with coherent, feasible research objectives to be pursued during their time in residence.

 

Since 2004 the IIMS and ICSID has hosted for a period from two weeks to several months visiting researchers from Japan, USA, Germany, Italy, Korea, Australia, and Mongolia with the support of the DAAD and Humboldt Foundation grants and financial aid of other scientific foundations, the HSE included.

 

During 2014 ICSID hosted about 10 Ph.D. candidates and visiting researchers from top world Universities. Here you can find the full list if ICSID visiting researchers for all years and interviews with some of our recent visiting researchers: Brendan McElroy, Michael Rochlitz, Kyle Marquardt.

Editorial:

 

With this 73rd issue of EACES quarterly newsletter, the president has thanked local organising committee of the Budapest Biennial Conference for the wonderful job. His message has given some glimpse for the forthcoming Biennial Conference to be held at Regensburg, Germany. Furthermore, the newsletter also includes the minutes of the recent board meeting of the association held in Brussels.

 

This newsletter is reminding the Call for Papers to the First World Congress of Comparative Economics. This historic event will be the outcome of the collaboration among The European Association for Comparative Economic Studies (EACES), The Association for Comparative Economic Studies (ACES), The Japanese Association for Comparative Economic Studies (JACES), The Korean Association for Comparative Economic Studies (KACES), The Italian Association for Comparative Economic Studies (AISSEC), The Society for the Study of Emerging Markets (SSEM), The Chinese Economists Society (CES), The European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy (EAEPE)  and many other scientific associations and networks. This world congress on comparative economics will be held in 25-27 June, 2015, to be locally organised by the Department of Economics of Roma Tre University at Rome, Italy. Presidential message also highlights the novelty of this forthcoming event. In addition to this, call for papers to 7th Joint IOS/APB/EACES Summer Academy on Central and Eastern Europe, 4th ICSID Conference, EACES-HSE Workshop, and EACES-SIE Joint Session are also inclusive in this newsletter.

 

Reminders of the forthcoming conference and seminars are the subject matters of Section 3. They include EACES-HSE PhD Seminar on Comparative Economic Studies, Challenges of Europe:  Growth, Competitiveness and Inequalities, 1st Workshop on Youth Unemployment in Europe, International Scholarly Conference, EACES-HSE Workshop, and Third Annual Conference of IOS.

Why did the effects of the financial crises vary so strongly between countries?

 

Section 4 presents the recent publications of EACES members; they include the list of books and scholarly articles published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Moreover, this issue also includes the list of scientific articles appeared in the current issues of European Journal of Comparative Economics, Economic Systems, Post-Communist Economies, Comparative Economic Studies, Journal of Comparative Economics, and European Journal of Development Research. Managing editors will continue forwarding me information regarding the publication of new issues of the journals.    

 

Vacancy announcements in Bournemouth University and Higher School of Economics are presented in Section 5. This section also contains information regarding the establishment and request for the proposal to Stiglitz Essay Prize. I will keep on posting similar opportunities in forthcoming issues upon availability of the information from our members.

 

The editor welcomes any comment/suggestion for the improvement of the newsletter. The submissions of the contents to include in the newsletter are requested to deliver in the form of hard copy or (preferably) electronic copy as a Microsoft Word file to:
