Abstract: This thesis is mainly focused on effects of institutional constraints on the property rights protection market regarding the amount of cooperation in the community and therefore the form of the state (or social cooperation). Crucial point of my analysis is the main reason for state emergence - the possibility of using force to acquire property and it's reduction by different means of protection.
I start with K. Konrad's and S. Skaperdas' model and extend it to allow cooperation under specific conditions, which leads to significant reductions in the costs of private property protection. This extension also allows us to link single static phases and in some cases even talk about deterministic evolution.
