Using rigorous scientific methods, New Institutional Economics (NIE) focuses on the analysis of the economic impact and on the evolution of co-ordination devices: institutions, organisations and contracts. Main subjects of investigation cover issues that are essential in the design of efficient public policies and firm strategies. NIE 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 sciences, anthropology, sociology, management sciences, law, and economics.
The goal of ESNIE is to make PhDs and Post-doc aware of the recent development in NIE and to train them in using rigorous methods. In addition, they will benefit of intensive networking aimed at stimulating future exchanges and co-operation among participants and to favour the integration of young researchers in the research community.
