Special Session of AFEE and EAEPE

“Institutional Evolution in Central and Eastern Europe – taking stock
and looking forward”
to be held at the 25th Anniversary conference of CASE (Center for
Social and Economic Research)

“The Future of Europe – Central and Eastern Europe in a Comparative
Perspective”
Warsaw, Poland 17 – 18 November 2016

Starting in 1989 Poland and all the region of Central and Eastern
Europe has undergone substantial
changes, including transition to a market economy and accession of
some of the countries to the
European Union. The region has faced substantial challenges arising
from integration with the
European and global economy, the financial crisis, and is currently
confronted with the changing role
Transition to the market economy was an institutional change par
excellence. This institutional
change, however, developed differently in individual countries from
the very beginning, some of
them adopting a faster transition, whilst others moved more slowly.
Further, the process of change
was modified to reflect local conditions and culture, be it
spontaneous or originating from political
struggles. This is why comparing institutional change experiences of
the countries of Central and
Eastern Europe and drawing conclusions from lessons learnt is a
valuable exercise.

For this reason the Association for Evolutionary Economics (AFEE) and
the European Association for
Evolutionary Political Economy (EAEPE) wish to organize a Special
Session at the CASE Conference
under the title:
Institutional Evolution in Central and Eastern Europe – taking stock
and looking forward

above Special Session. We
expect the papers to focus on the general features and sources of
institutional evolution in Central
and Eastern Europe, the role of major agents of institutional change,
the shape of institutions
governing particular areas of social and economic life, namely
production, labour, finance, social
protection, foreign trade.

We invite you to send abstracts of up to 800 words, plus keywords and
JEL codes, to:
