New publication

1) With Elodie Bertrand: The Elgar Companion to Ronald H. Coase, a collection of 26 chapters from leading economists, asssessing Coase's contributions and indicating paths to be explored in the continuity of his contributions.

2) With Christine Leon de Mariz and Bernard Abeillé, both formerly from the World Bank, we have a book coming out from Oxford University Press on Public Procurement Reforms in Africa: Challenges in Institutions and Organizations. This book proposes an in-depth analysis of the many challenges that reforms face, with an emphasis on the flaws in institutional design, the misunderstanding of the role of informal rules, and the need to take into account the key role of intermediary mechanisms (that we identify as micro-institutions) in the design, implementation and enforcement of reforms.

3) The long waited and much needed Handbook of Organizational Economics, edited by Robert Gibbons and John Robert, is now available from Princeton University Press. I contributed to this book with a chapter on Hybrid Modes of Organization.
