The conference celebrated the life and work of Ronald Coase, his insights into the conduct of economic research, and lessons for institutional reform. Coase challenged scholars and policy practitioners to examine real-world institutions, analyze alternative courses of action, and change the way we think about problems.

They discussed the impact of Coasean research on policies and development, shared field insights from China and other countries, and charted future directions for innovative, influential research.
