Candidates: Students who are interested in studying social sciences from a theoretical perspective. Under- graduate candidates should either have enough exposure to social sciences and plan to undertake a doctoral program in the future, or have a strong math background and plan to study social sciences in the future (al- though math is not required for the study). High school candidates are expected to have some exposure to social sciences and philosophy, and would be interested to explore the field further.

Here are some sample topics people might be interested, but students are highly encouraged to come up with their own questions

● What are the determinants of corruption? Is it possible to develop a theory of corruption that starts from political officials actual choices, and then embed those choices within a broader political system?

● Why have the Western European countries developed democratic, capital intensive countries, whereas the countries in Eastern European and East Asian countries fell behind, and yet some other countries have not achieved democracy nor moderate economic development? How could a country become democratic? What are the conditions for potential economic development in manufacture and technology?

● What is the origin of social inequality? When could the masses initiate a revolution against the elites, like the French Revolution, and when do they choose to bear the burden? Could we construct a theory that the masses optimally choose to participate in revolutions in one circumstances and not in another?
