1.1 Message from the President


 


 

 

Expert Image

 

 

Dear Colleagues,

 


 

I write to you just after the conclusion of the First World Congress on Comparative Economics, held in Rome. This was a remarkable event, with more than three hundred presentations, a keynote address from Avner Greif and several plenary panels containing major contributors to the field from our Association including Mario Nuti, Marcello Signorelli and Jan Svejnar. The Congress was very much the brainchild of Marcello Signorelli, our former President, and the local organisation was arranged admirably by Pasquale Tridico. The Congress confirmed the vitality of the Association, and our partner associations around the world, and provided a showcase for all the excellent research being undertaken in our field.

 

I am pleased to be able to say that, building on this success, we have decided to continue the idea of World Congresses held jointly by all the Associations. We have agreed that the next World Congress will be held in St Petersburg two years from now, in the summer of 2017. In this way, we intend to be able to develop further our successful collaboration. I am delighted that our EACES Board member, Andrei Yakovlev, has agreed to host this important meeting and thank him sincerely on your behalf.

 

At our Board meeting held in Rome last week, we also considered the plans for the next EACES bi-annual Conference, which are already well advanced. As you will remember, this will be held in Regensburg, Germany on September 6th-8th. The likely theme of the conference will be Comparative Economic Development in the Long Run. There will be a formal call for papers in the next few months but you may already wish to be planning your participation.

 

Of course, the Association also supports numerous other workshops, seminars and conferences, and the ones being held in the immediate future are listed in this newsletter. We hope you will also be able to take part in these events.

 

In conclusion may I wish you a restful and fruitful summer and look forward to meeting you all soon at a future EACES event.

3.2 Report on the Conference “Achievements and Challenges for the Emerging Economics”

 

On the 22-24th June 2015 as part of the School of Slavonic and East European Studies centenary celebrations, the Economics and Business Group held the conference entitled “Achievements and Challenges for the Emerging Economics of Central Europe”. Scholars at SSEES have been investigating all aspects of life in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, Russia and Eurasia for the last 100 years. As a result, in 2015, SSEES stands as one of the world leading institutes specialising in this geographical area and as the largest group of experts outside the region. The conference aimed to reflect SSEES scholars’ contribution to the understanding of various aspects of socio-economic developments in the region, and was broadly structured around the following research themes: wellbeing and welfare; public finance; political participation; innovation, entrepreneurship and institutions;  finance;  labour markets; economic history, and European integration. Worldwide-known academics such as Leora Klapper (World Bank), Michael Landesmann (WIIW) and Keun Lee (Seoul National University) gave intellectually stimulating keynote speeches, discussing the issues of financial inclusion, convergence and divergence, and catching-up in the region. The first day of the conference ended with the lively discussion at the round table following the presentation from Theo Thomas (World Bank) “Stalling Economic Growth in Emerging Europe and Central Asia”. The conference was attended by scholars from EBRD, IMF and World Bank, leading UK and CEE universities, representatives of CEE country national banks. Presentation of papers at various research theme panels generated interesting debates, and laid good foundation for reflecting together on the achievements in the region, current challenges and avenues for future research. SSEES kindly acknowledges among others the financial support from the European Association for Comparative Economic Studies in organising this conference. There are expected to be more workshops and conferences organised in the future by the Centre for Comparative Studies of Emerging Economies (CCSEEs) that has been launched recently to support the development of the research agenda on comparative economics of emerging economies at UCL SSEES. Additional information on this will be circulated due date to encourage participation of EACES members.

III4th ICSID Conference 2015 ‘Institutions, Elites and Collective Action in the Developing World’

 

June 30th – July 1st, 2015

Higher School of Economics, Moscow

 

International Center 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 Center 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):

  • Elites and elite networks in Russia
  • Incentives for bureaucracy in Russia and China
  • Trust and Cultural Norms in Russia
  • Collective action in Russia
  • Social policy in Russia

 

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.

Editorial:

 

This 74th issue of EACES quarterly newsletter includes the message of the president that highlights three major issues: successful completion of the first world congress on comparative economics; confirmation of the second world congress in St. Petersburg, Russia; and the progress regarding the forthcoming bi-annual EACES conference in Regensburg, Germany. The president has praised the roles played by Mario Nuti, Marcello Signorelli and Jan Svejnar in organising the historic event of First World Congress on Comparative Economics. The next World Congress will be held in St Petersburg in two years from now. Likewise, EACES will organise the next biennial conference in 6-8 September 2016 to be held in Regensburg, Germany, which are already well advanced. The likely theme of the conference will be Comparative Economic Development in the Long Run. The call for papers will be after a couple of months from now.

 

Section 2 of this newsletter includes three important calls for papers. 7th Joint IOS/APB/EACES Summer Academy on Central and Eastern Europe will be organised by the Institute for East and South-East European Studies (IOS, Regensburg) to be held in APB Tutzing, Germany, during 27-29 July 2015. Likewise, Financial Development in Transition and Post-transition Countries will be held during September 11-12 2015 at Department of Economics, University of Belgrade, Serbia. EACES and Higher School of Economics will jointly organise an workshop on ‘Russian Firms in Comparative Perspective’ in 21-22 April 2016, Moscow, Russia. Individuals will follow the link and submit the papers to these workshops in due course.

 

Professor Amartya Sen (Nobel Laureate in Economics, 1998) delivered a lecture on “Ethics and Economics” at the University of Perugia on May 7, 2015. Section 3 gives a link to access the synopsis and video of the lecture. Furthermore, this section also presents a report on the conference “Achievements and Challenges for the Emerging Economics of Central Europe” held in 22-24 June 2015 as part of the School of Slavonic and East European Studies’ centenary celebrations organised by the Economics and Business Group of the University College London. Information regarding the establishment of Stiglitz Essay Prize and call for essays for the same by International Economic Association is also included in this section.

 

Section 4 is all about the reminders of the forthcoming conferences/seminars/workshops. Four of these events are organised by July 2015 and include EACES-HSE Workshop, EACES-HSE Workshop Moscow, 4th ICSID Conference 2015 on ‘Institutions, Elites and Collective Action in the Developing World’, and Third Annual Conference of IOS. The Role of State in Varieties of Capitalism (SVOC): Achievements and Challenges for Central and Eastern Europe and the Emerging Markets will be organised in November 2015.

 

Journals associated with comparative economic societies and their recent publications are in Section 5. They include Economic Systems, Post-communist Economies, Comparative Economic Studies, Journal of Comparative Economics, European Journal of Development Research, and Economic Annals.
