The seminars focus on the interdependence between the economic and social systems at the time of a deep transformation. Thanks to courses like Political Economy of Policy Reform, Economy and Society (I and II), Seminar on Corruption and Sociology of Institutional Change, students are able to observe theories “in action”, as instruments for achieving a better understanding of the socio-economic world.
