10 Nice Recent Papers in Institutional Economics

Today, I spent my day writing up a syllabus for a class in institutional economics I'm to give at HSE's Perm campus in November. Looking for new research in the field, I found a whole bunch of interesting new papers. Below is a list of the 10 papers I liked most (for a large part of the list, I'm indebted to Andres Marroquin's brilliant blog on institutional and development economics):
