Economy and Society

The Economy and Society track was designed to help students develop an understanding of how social preconditions may both limit and stimulate change from non-market to various types of market economy. The seminars focus on the interdependence between the economic and social systems at the time of a deep transformation. Thanks to courses such as Economy and Society , Seminar on Corruption, Organized Crime and Human Trafficking, students are able to observe theories “in action”, as instruments for achieving a better understanding of the socio-economic world.
