Institutional economics is attempting to study economic phenomena as they appear in the real word. Institutions are the key elements of any economy, and thus a major task for economists is to study institutions and the processes of institutional change. The course is intended to enable students to get familiar with principal concepts used in the framework of institutional and evolutionary economics. Students are supposed to study the key papers on the institutional analysis. The course is focused on the main principles and issues of the process of institutional change.
Law and economics
In some areas of legal practice, economic reasoning is often central to the focus of legal arguments. A discipline “Law and Economics" blends expertise in law and economics and enables economists to examine a wide range of issues related to law. The course is intended to enable students to get acquainted with principal concepts used in the framework of law and economics. Students are also expected to analyze the legal mechanisms of economic regulation.
Socioeconomics is an emerging discipline which begins with the assumption that economics is not a self-contained system, but is embedded in society, polity, and culture. Socioeconomics regards economic system as a subsystem encapsulated within a societal context that contains values, power relations and social networks. The purpose of the course is to advance the understanding of economic behavior across a broad range of academic disciplines; to analyze the impact of societal, institutional, historical, philosophical, psychological and ethical factors on the economy; to balance inductive and deductive approaches to the study of economic behavior at both micro and macro levels of analysis.
