Michael Rochlitz

I am Professor of Institutional Economics at the Faculty of Business Studies and Economics, University of Bremen, as well as associate fellow at the Center for the Study of Institutions and Development at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, member of the Russia Political Insight team, and faculty member at the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS). You can find my google scholar profile here, and news about the activity of our research group at Uni Bremen here.

In my research, I investigate the interrelation between political institutions, economic development and societal change, with a regional focus on Russia 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, Economic Systems, Post-Soviet Affairs, Russian Politics, Eurasian Geography and Economics, and the Russian Journal of Economics.

I teach classes in institutional, industrial and development economics, comparative political economy, game theory, Chinese and Russian politics, politics of memory, and social science research methods. You can reach me under michael.rochlitz@gmail.com.
