Welcome to the Virtual Knowledge Center (VKC) of the research group Social Economic History. Our research group is part of Utrecht University's Research Institute for History and Culture (OGC).
The group Social Economic History focuses on the economic and social history of Europe and Asia from the late Middle Ages to the present. The main theme throughout the research is the question why – over time - such large economic and social differences develop between and within countries and regions. In order to be able to answer this question research is carried out into the exchange between socio-economic development and institutional change. This exchange is also central to the principal publications of recent years.
