The Institutions, Organizations, and Growth (IOG) Program, in partnership with the Becker Friedman Institute for Economics at the University of Chicago (BFI), invited leading scholars and IOG members to convene three times annually for research conferences and academic exchange. The IOG Program aims to move beyond the limits of traditional economic approaches and provide new frameworks for understanding why some nations succeed economically while others continually fail; why institutions that foster wealth and well-being in one culture, location, or historical period may be less effective in another; and what policies will create the greatest potential for progress. The IOG Program has a long tradition of fruitful interdisciplinary interactions among scholars from a wide range of analytical perspectives in the social sciences.
Participation in IOG-BFI conferences is by invitation only. Scholars who study topics related to institutions, organizations, and growth across a wide variety of disciplines were invited. For questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
All times are listed in CET.
