Centre for Research in Institutional Economics (CRIE)

With colleagues at the University of Hertfordshire I founded the Centre for Research in Institutional Economics in 1999. From its foundation I was its Director. The Centre for Research in Institutional Economics (CRIE) combined research in the 'new' and 'old' conceptual traditions in institutional economics.

 

In 2009, following a reorganisation of research units in the business school, CRIE was replaced by the Group for Research in Organisational Evolution (GROE), which in 2015 became part of the Organisations, Markets and Policy group.

 

CRIE organised workshops and other events.

 

The following evaluations are taken from a 2003 report on CRIE:

The Centre for Research in Institutional Economics represents one of few places in the world where serious scholarship is undertaken on institutional economics. (Prof Daniel Bromley, USA)

It is no exaggeration to say that some of the work that is emerging from CRIE defines cutting-edge research. (Prof Nicolai Foss, Denmark)

If I was asked to name three institutions with a recognised reputation in institutional economics I would name Stanford University, Copenhagen Business School and the University of Hertfordshire. (Prof Neil Kay, UK)

In the area of economics, and institutional economics on particular, CRIE has put the University of Hertfordshire on the world map. (Prof Uskali Mki, The Netherlands)

CRIE is one of the top three centers of research into institutionalist theory, evolutionary economics and applied work in Europe. (Prof Philip Mirowski, USA)

The Centre for Research in Institutional Economics at the University of Hertfordshire is one of the leading institutions for the research on economic institutions and has had a remarkable impact on the international academic community. (Prof Ugo Pagano, Italy)

In spite of its relatively small size, there is no doubt that the Centre for Research in Institutional Economics at the University of Hertfordshire has a considerable impact on ongoing international discussions in institutional economics. (Prof Jack Vromen, The Netherlands)

The Centre for Research in Institutional Economics (CRIE) at the University of Hertfordshire has become the leading centre in Europe for research into institutional economics. (Prof Ulrich Witt, Germany)
