I have been doing plural economics activism for a long time in my bachelor-studies in economics and politics. Now, being in the Master "Political Economy of European Integration" HWR Berlin, I wanted to focus a bit on my academic path of life. Accumulating more knowledge and gathering new insights about things I could not learn in my Bachelor was the reason for my pause in activism. At the moment I'm working in a project on the social reception of the "Rule of Law" in Germany and Poland at the European Academy Berlin where I got insights into the New Institutional Economics, Constitutional Economics and Sociology of Law. While the project was promising at the beginning, I was getting more sceptical over time. Right now I see myself in a good position to criticize this area and the methodology which is used.
Next to this, I'm continuing to prepare for my Master Thesis which I want to write about Feminist Economics. I have already done workshops with my friends from the Plurale Ökonomik Halle about S. Federici and other topics related to the political economy of feminist thinking.

James Robinson gives in this talk a short introduction into the theory and ideas of his popular book "Why Nations Fail" which was published together with D. Acemoglu in 2012. With many real-life examples he gives a lively description on the fundamentals for economic success from an institutionalist view. According to Robinson, the nature of institutions is a crucial factor for economic success. Whether institutions are inclusive (such as in prosperous economies) or extractive (poor economies) stems from the nation's political process and the distribution of political power.
