Misook Choi (Researcher, Governance in Emerging Economies in Berlin, and PhD Candidate, University of Groningen)
In her dissertation, Misook Choi explores how state capitalism emerged and sustained in the post-socialist bloc over the last three decades.The longitudinal comparison traces economic institutions and industrial strategies which crystalize socio-political compromises, covering Belarus, Slovenia, Poland, Hungary, Russia, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan. At the session, we will discuss Trajectory-based Qualitative comparative analysis (TJ-QCA) results with brief explanations on the typical cases of each trajectory type including Belarus and Kazakhstan.
ZOiS Research Colloquium
As of the winter semester 2020, the Centre for East European and International Studies (ZOiS), in cooperation with the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Europa-Universität Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), is opening invitations to a new multidisciplinary research colloquium. The colloquium is to serve as a discussion forum for work in progress by PhD candidates, postdocs, and established researchers whose work in the social sciences focuses on Eastern Europe. With this colloquium, the aim is to establish a permanent meeting point in the Berlin-Brandenburg area for those engaged in research on Eastern Europe. The research colloquium will take place online every second Wednesday at 5pm in the months during the semester. We will send the access data shortly before the beginning of each session.
