A conference that aims at establishing research cooperation with Swedish and other European universities on one aspect: the role of institutions for growth.
Monday March 27, 8.30-12.30, Peter Wallenberg hall, Stockholm School of Economics
At a point when economic, social and ecological challenges put policy makers to a test, quantitative and qualitative approaches currently used to support policy interventions have proven less solid and useful than would be desirable. REBOOT, a project launched by a group of UK universities, is designed with a view to rectifying this situation. This conference aims at establishing research cooperation with Swedish and other European universities on one aspect: the role of institutions for growth.
The conference is timely as the European Commission days before the conference is expected to publish a White Paper on the future of the EU, which is bound to address missing institutions in the Eurozone. The recent rejection of the global market economy and the free movement of people by American and British voters have also highlighted the lack of proper global institutions to manage unsustainable trade imbalances, migration and other issues, raising other research questions.
A first conference 28 November last year successfully established research cooperation on how to include the financial system in existing models and in new agent-based models. This second conference on the role of institutions will focus on qualitative approaches.
