Research

My main research area is long-term formal institutional change at its reciprocal relation with the long-term economic development. I mainly focus on the legislative activities of British Parliament, and examine the acts and statutes of the Parliament both quantitative and qualitative aspects from mid-18th to mid-19th century to be able to understand how Parliamentary legislation is effected by the industrialization of Britain, and then how it affected it back. I also examine the political economy of these legislation and what kind of socio-economic conflict was hidden behind it. I mainly use Parliamentary Archives and Hansard Archives as my main data sources.
