Michael Rochlitz

I am Associate Professor in the Economies of Russia, Eastern Europe and Eurasia at the Oxford School of Global and Area Studies and Fellow at St Antony's College, University of Oxford.

In my research, I investigate the interrelation between political institutions, economic development and societal change, with a regional focus on Russia, the former Soviet Union and China. My work has been published, among others, in the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, Comparative Political Studies, the European Journal of Political Economy, Post-Soviet Affairs, Russian Politics, Eurasian Geography and Economics, and Osteuropa.

Before joining Oxford, I was Professor of Institutional Economics at the University of Bremen, Research Fellow at LMU Munich, and Assistant Professor at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow. You can reach me under michael.rochlitz@gmail.com.
