Gender equality and economic development - highlights from SITE Development Day 2018
The Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) with support from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs organised the annual SITE Development Day conference dedicated to discuss initiatives that can help create a more equal society and improve economic development.
SITE Research on Political Behavior in the Arab World
Why do citizens facing similar conditions – marginalization, exclusion, deteriorating public services, corrupt government, and inequality – rely on different behaviors to express political sentiments?
SITE research on top incomes from a gender perspective
In recent years the importance of top incomes has become apparent in the study of economic inequality. But one dimension that has not received attention in the top income literature is that of gender. In “Women in Top Incomes: Evidence from Sweden 1974–2013”, SITE Associate Professor Jesper Roine therefore takes a closer look at top incomes from a gender perspective together with Anne Boschini and Kristin Gunnarsson.
SITE Research on Whistleblower Rewards, False Reports & Corporate Fraud
Rewards for whistleblowers – is it an efficient way to detect crimes? Or will it lead to fraudulent reports, making law enforcement costlier and less effective in the end? These questions are at the centre of a heated debate, as US enforcement agencies have been increasingly relying on incentives for corporate whistleblowers, while their European counterparts appear weary of introducing them. SITE Professor Giancarlo Spagnolo, together with Paolo Buccirossi and Giovanni Immordino, try to shed some light on this debate by studying how an effective reward program can be designed.
