- Sergei Guriev
Sergei Guriev, who joined the Department of Economics as Full Professor this past Fall, will be taking the helm of the International Society for New Institutional Economics (ISNIE) in 2016.
ISNIE is "an interdisciplinary enterprise combining economics, law, organization theory, political science, sociology and anthropology to understand the institutions of social, political and commercial life... but its primary language is economics. Its goal is to explain what institutions are, how they arise, what purposes they serve, how they change and how - if at all – they should be reformed."
Among his duties, Sergei GURIEV will be in charge of organising ISNIE's Annual Conference in 2016 at Sciences Po - after Harvard, and before Columbia - with the support of the Department and LIEPP.
