Vladimir Dubrovskiy, Leading Researcher and Member of the Supervisory Board. The presentation on political-economic mechanisms of reforms under the prevailing rent-seeking, as in the post-Soviet transition (with Ukraine as an example), prepared for the Ronald Coase Institute's Workshop in Institutional Analysis (Barcelona, Spain, September 2005), and amended with use of the comments and feedback from faculty and participants. Several slides are inserted also in order of making the presentation more understandable for the non-specialists in political economy.
