H: Markets, Firms and Institutions

Melike Arslan is a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne. She mainly studies the legal and regulatory infrastructure of liberal market economies from a comparative and international perspective. Her previous works on corporate bankruptcy laws, transnational legal indicators, and the legal foundations of money were published in the International Journal of Law in Context and Annual Review of Law and Social Science. Her new project delves into the drivers and consequences of consumers’ moral denouncement of price hikes as “price gouging” during the Covid-19 pandemic. She is also involved in several collaborative projects on business elite networks, state aid (subsidy) policies, and long-term planning for global climate change.
