SCANCOR Symposium

The SCAN­COR Sym­posium con­sists of Pub­lic Morn­ing Lec­tures and a PhD Work­shop. At the 15th SCAN­COR PhD Work­shop on In­sti­tu­tional Ana­lysis in­ter­na­tional fac­ulty will present cur­rent re­search, re­view re­cent pa­pers, and dis­cuss new meth­od­o­lo­gical tools that deepen the in­sti­tu­tional agenda. Spe­cial at­ten­tion is given to in­sti­tu­tional emer­gence, per­sist­ence, and trans­form­a­tion. We also em­phas­ize meth­ods of com­par­at­ive, archival, and net­work ana­lysis. Fi­nally, we tackle is­sues in­volving con­test­a­tion and strife around in­sti­tu­tions and or­gan­iz­a­tions.

Stu­dents will take away new in­sights and meas­ures, and a deeper un­der­stand­ing of how to match con­cep­tual ques­tions with re­search meth­ods. The work­shop will pre­pare PhD stu­dents to carry out their own in­di­vidual re­search us­ing the meth­ods of in­sti­tu­tional ana­lysis. Pre­vi­ous work­shops were hos­ted at Stan­ford Uni­versity, Copen­ha­gen Busi­ness School, Aalto Uni­versity, IESE Bar­celona, Uni­versity of Man­nheim, Hebrew Uni­versity of Jer­u­s­alem, EMLYON Busi­ness School, and Stock­holm School of Eco­nom­ics.

In ad­di­tion to pub­lic morn­ing lec­tures, after­noon work­shop ses­sions for PhD stu­dents are de­voted to dis­cuss­ing both clas­sic and con­tem­por­ary the­or­et­ical devel­op­ments within in­sti­tu­tional the­ory. Hence, the work­shop con­sists of two parts each day (Mon-­Fri):

  • In pub­lic morn­ing lec­tures in­ter­na­tional fac­ulty will present and dis­cuss re­search within the field of in­sti­tu­tional the­ory. The lec­tures in the morn­ing are open to the pub­lic and guests are highly wel­come. In­ter­ested guests are kindly asked to re­gister (see link below).

  • After­noon work­shop ses­sions with in­ter­na­tional fac­ulty are lim­ited to PhD stu­dents who suc­cess­fully ap­ply to the work­shop. Ad­mit­ted PhD stu­dents do not have to re­gister sep­ar­ately for the pub­lic morn­ing lec­tures, as they will at­tend both parts of the work­shop and will re­ceive the cor­res­pond­ing course cred­its.
