Workshop on Institutional Analysis

The Workshop on Institutional Analysis will be hosted by the Binh Duong New City, Vietnam, on May 10-16, 2020.

Workshop objectives:

 Present your research in new ways in a small, focused setting.  Share intensive discussions and get feedback from faculty and other participants:  first within a small group, then formally before the entire workshop.  Ten full-time faculty will provide intensive mentoring.

Hear the faculty discuss their own research and strategies to formulate questions, develop analysis, and communicate results.

Network closely with faculty and other young scholars who have an enduring interest in institutional analysis.  After the daily sessions, enjoy informal conversations during delicious dinners. There will also be a special event and a gala dinner.  Upon graduation, become part of a scholarly network with alumni from 76 countries.
