CfP: 6th Workshop on Relational Contracts

By Giorgio Zanarone

The sixth Workshop on Relational Contracts, organized by Marta Troya, Dan Barron, Matthias Fahn, and myself, will take place on June 23-24, 2020, in Moscow, and will feature a keynote lecture delivered by Pol Antras (Harvard University).

The call for submissions will be open until February 2, 2020, and can be found (together with information on past workshops in the series) at

The workshop on relational contracts provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers to present and discuss recent theoretical and empirical advances in the study of informal governance and dynamic contracting. As shown by a growing body of research in economics, management, law and political science, these tools are essential tools to understand the functioning of firms, interfirm networks and collaborations, international trade, as well as political and legal institutions, in both developing and advanced economies. The workshop on relational contracts therefore touches upon the central research interests of the SIOE community, and that is why we look forward to your contribution and participation!
