The Oliver E. Williamson Seminar on Institutional Analysis, named after our esteemed colleague who founded the seminar, features current research by faculty, from UCB and elsewhere, and by advanced doctoral students. The research investigates governance and its links with economic and political forces. Markets, hierarchies, hybrids, and the supporting institutions of law and politics all come under scrutiny in the seminar. Over the years, the seminar has contributed to pushing the frontier of knowledge on governance, and on the norms and institutions that lead to societal success or failure.
The OEW Seminar meets on Thursdays from 12:00 – 1:30 pm in room C330 Cheit Hall. Outside speakers normally meet with interested students from 3:00 – 3:45 pm in room F589 (in the Faculty Wing of the Haas School).
