Given the rapid spread of the COVID-19 crisis, and the related generalized meeting/travel restrictions, as well as the absolute necessity to limit our social interaction to help slow the spread of the virus, we regret to announce that we have decided to cancel the 2020 edition of IOEA, which had been scheduled for May 18-22 at the IESC in Corsica.
The 2021 edition of IOEA will be held on May 17-21, and we will start to organize it once the present crisis will be over.
In eighteen years of existence, the Institutional and Organizational Economics Academy (IOEA) has become one of the most prominent events in research on institutional and organizational economics.
Using rigorous scientific methods, Institutional and Organizational Economics (IOE) focuses on the analysis of the economic impacts and on the evolutions of co-ordination frameworks: institutions, organizations and contracts. Main subjects of investigation cover issues that are essential in the design of efficient public policies and firm strategies. IOE 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 science, anthropology, sociology, management, law, and economics.
The IOEA organizes three types of activities:
Over the years, IOEA has continually built up a dense and wide network of researchers and students interested in this dynamic field.
The strong mobilization of scholars, the organization of complementary workshops and joint publications, the development of on-line resources, the benefit of well-suited facilities, the support of renowned universities, the reiterated financial support from numerous noteworthy institutions and the positive signal that these supports gives to researchers have all contributed to a long-term success. Today more than 350 alumni currently hold academic positions throughout the world, and many scientific co-operations were initiated in this framework.
