Every year since 2002, the Governance & Regulation Chair holds the Institutional and Organizational Economics Academy (IOEA). In sixteen years of existence, the IOEA has become one of the most prominent events in research on institutional and organizational economics.
Using rigorous scientific methods, Institutional and Organizational Economics (IOE) focuses on the analysis of the economic impacts and on the evolutions of co-ordination frameworks: institutions, organizations and contracts. Main subjects of investigation cover issues that are essential in the design of efficient public policies and firm strategies. IOE put emphasis on applied analysis to confront the theory to facts to enrich the former accordingly. In addition, it is based on multi-disciplinarity to stimulate cross-fertilisation among political science, anthropology, sociology, management, law, and economics.
The IOEA organizes three types of activities:
- A one-week spring school which is held every year at the Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques de Cargèse in Corsica (France) and combines lectures given by internationally recognized scholars, and workshops and seminars coordinated by young scientists known for their expertise either on a research topic or on a methodology;
- A one-day conference in Paris (held in French) where recent works on IOE are presented and discussed;
- Workshops focusing on a specific topic in the field
