RSSIA 2022

Russian Summer School on Institutional Analysis


Today we are forced to operate in conditions of high uncertainty. It prevents us from planning Russian Summer School on Institutional Analysis. Thus, we regret to inform that we have to cancel RSSIA 2022.

The Center for Institutional Studies (CInSt, HSE University) and International laboratory of Intangible-driven Economy (IDlab, HSE University) and the Academic Writing Center (AWC, HSE University) are pleased to announce a call for applications for the XVIth Russian Summer School on Institutional Analysis (RSSIA). The School will have online sessions (April, 2022) and one offline session (the first week of July, 2022) in Tsarskoye Selo, five minutes' walk from palaces and parks.

The aim of the RSSIA is to promote empirical research in various fields of economics and foster the communication and expertise exchange between early-career researchers and established scholars, faculty and students. The RSSIA-2022 will continue the tradition of previous Summer Schools with project proposal presentations and discussions, tutorials, faculty lectures, and networking opportunities.

The RSSIA-2022 will support participants on their way from a research idea to a paper. Intense work on papers in small groups, feedback and support from faculty members for three months are among the major features of the RSSIA-2022.

RSSIA 2022 scope includes (and goes far beyond) the following fields: Applied Microeconomic Theory, Economics of Education, Economic Incentives, Economic History, Industrial Organization, Institutions, Labour Economics, Public Economics, Sports Economics, etc. The empirical research proposals on other topics, requiring the use of tools of economic analysis and/or computer science techniques, are welcome.

Dennis C. Coates (University of Maryland and HSE University),
Sergey Popov (Cardiff Business School and HSE University),
Koen Schoors (Ghent University and HSE University),

  • to present and discuss stages of your current research during seminars;
  • to exchange your research experience with other the RSSIA participants and faculty members;
  • to upgrade your skills of research writing with Svetlana Suchkova (Head of AWC at HSE University).

All this will consequently lead to enhancing your research.
