23 - 24 May 2022 / hybrid I Vienna / Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB) and SUERF - The European Money and Finance Forum

SUERF - The European Money and Finance Forum and the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB) invite researchers to submit papers for the 35th SUERF Colloquium and 49th OeNB Annual Economic Conference, which will take place in Vienna on 23-24 May 2022, on the topic of “The Return of Inflation”.

14 - 17 June 2022 / University of Pisa, Dep. Economics and Management / University of Pisa, Dep. Economics and Management

The 14th International Conference of the European Society for Ecological Economics takes place exactly 50 years after the UN conference on the human environment, where the UN acknowledged the environmental crisis. Yet the current state of the environmental crisis seems to indicate that the needed actions and policies have not yet been implemented. We need to move beyond solutions based only on technology, and design transformative action on sustainability. The conference addresses these issues, and aims to contribute to a better understanding of the actions needed to change the current unsustainable trajectories of human society and economy, by addressing amongst others the science-policy gap. The questions: ‘Will politicians catch up with science and engaged civil society?’ and ‘What are the transformative actions to escape from the current unsustainable paths?’ will stand central during the conference.

We welcome original theoretical and empirical contributions, from different disciplines and geographies on topics including:
Transformations - Theoretical perspectives and new ideas - Teaching and communication - Resources - Policies - Institutions and power - Business and transition - Behaviour and social change - Alternative economies

DEADLINE abstract submission: 7 December 2021

22 - 24 June 2022 / Lucca, Italy /

We are writing to invite you to submit a paper or to express your interest in attending CEPR's European Research Workshop in International Trade (ERWIT) 2022, to be held in Lucca from 22 to 24 June 2022, organised in cooperation with IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca. We invite papers on topics related to international trade, foreign direct investment, migration, automation, and other issues related to globalisation.

ERWIT is an annual workshop that brings together international economists from across Europe and key researchers from outside the region. The workshop disseminates the findings of recent research on international trade, and presentations often involve exploratory rather than finished papers. It provides a unique opportunity to discuss trade-related research in a relaxed atmosphere. 

We are planning for ERWIT 2022 to take place physically in Lucca but will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation. The workshop will run for 3 full days from Wednesday 22 June until Friday 24 June (with arrival on Tuesday 21 June). CEPR and the local organisers will offer some funding for travel and accommodation, but we cannot guarantee funding for all participants. If you have alternative research travel funding at your disposal, we encourage you to indicate this on your reply form. This will help fund travel for participants who do not have other sources of funding, young researchers in particular. Where funding is provided for travel costs, this will be in accordance with the CEPR Travel Guidelines which will be circulated at a later date. We recommend that you hold off making any travel arrangements until further information has been given. 

Kindly note that it will not be possible to accept all applications to attend the event. At this stage, we would thus like you to simply confirm your interest in attending the meeting and indicate whether or not you wish to present a paper. When selecting papers, some preference will be given to researchers who have not presented at ERWIT recently, although we still encourage everyone to apply.

Authors who are CEPR affiliated or already have a CEPR profile can upload their submission by:
1) Going to http://portal.cepr.org/meetings/1448/info and log in to the CEPR portal

New Delhi, India

The India Policy Forum (IPF) Editors invite prospective authors to submit their draft papers for IPF 2022 to [email protected].

Draft paper submission deadline: April 30, 2022

The National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER) has been holding its
annual marquee event, the India Policy Forum (IPF) Conference every year since 2004. The IPF is a vital podium for carrying forward the rich legacy and historical traditions of promoting empirical evidence-based research that NCAER has always been known for. The IPF Conference is attended by a galaxy of eminent policymakers, scholars, practitioners,academics, and members of the research fraternity, thus providing an unparalleled platform and convening power for policy outreach. Apart from facilitating a dynamic interface between global experts and Indian policymakers, this one-of-a-kind event also mainstreams the economic challenges and persistent questions of the day while offering viable solutions for them.

The IPF promotes rigorous empirical research on Indian economic policy through
commissioned papers that are presented at an annual conference in New Delhi, discussed by leading researchers and top Indian policymakers, and then edited and published in the annual volume of the India Policy Forum. Besides the unique opportunity of interacting with top policymakers and scholars, the authors also receive peer reviewer comments and commentaries on their papers from the IPF participants.

The IPF Editors invite prospective authors to submit their draft papers for IPF 2022 to [email protected]. The submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. The ideal empirical papers should feature topics of policy relevance to India on which either - (1) there is new empirical evidence that can be presented, or (2) useful Indian and global evidence can be reviewed and synthesised for policymakers. Original research papers from younger scholars that present new data, analysis, and evidence for shaping policy are particularly welcome.

Important dates to remember:
Draft paper submission deadline: April 30, 2022
Paper selection and notification of acceptance: May 15, 2022
Revised final drafts for Conference submission deadline: June 15, 2022
Presentation at the Conference: July 11-13, 2022

Papers presented at the Conference will go through a second round of editorial review post the IPF before eventual publication in the IPF Volume, which will be edited by Dr Poonam Gupta (NCAER), Dr Karthik Muralidharan (University of California, San Diego), and Dr Pravin Krishna (Johns Hopkins University).
The authors of the selected papers will be paid return air airfare from their current place of work to New Delhi to present at the IPF 2022 conference and for their stay in New Delhi during the conference.

For queries, please contact [email protected] and [email protected].

12 - 12 November 2022 / Amsterdam, Netherlands /

The Event

This is the second edition of an annual conference series on the Political Economy of Finance. The series is an initiative of PolEconFin, a platform for researchers active in the political economy of finance.

This second edition will be dedicated to the intersection between political institutions, central banks, and the real sector.

The academic programme will consist of six papers with discussants and also feature a keynote lecture by:

Barry Eichengreen, University of California, Berkeley and CEPR

Questions regarding central banks’ independence and their mandates have repeatedly drawn renewed interest, first in the context of legacy issues in financial crises, the COVID-19 shock and the world climate emergency. This concerns both their role as supervisors and monetary policy authorities. At the same time, technological evolution in finance also challenges the modus operandi of central banks. These broad questions have major political economy implications. The organising committee invites submissions of theoretical and empirical papers on these issues. Topics of interest for the conference include:

• The politics of central bank independence
• Central bank power and COVID-19
• Economists’ capture and central bank research
• Private interests, lobbying, and central bank capture
• Democratic institutions and the design of monetary and financial authorities
• The (political) role of central banks in climate change
• Political consequences of central bank policies
• Independence and accountability in the conduct of monetary and financial policies
• Central bank’s mandate and governance problems
• Political economy aspects of central bank digital currencies
• Political challenges in regulating FinTech
• Financial repression and debt
 

Submission

The submission deadline is Sunday 29 May 2022 (6PM BST).

5 - 7 December 2022 / Geneva, Switzerland / World Trade Organization - WTO Gender Research Hub and WTO Trade and Gender Unit

The WTO Gender Research Hub has issued a call for papers for the first edition of the World Trade Congress on Gender entitled “Gender Equality for Sustainable Trade and Recovery.” The Congress, which will take place on 5-7 December 2022 at the WTO, is part of the research agenda undertaken by the WTO Gender Research Hub and the WTO Trade and Gender Unit. Selected applicants will have the opportunity to present their work to a global audience and to join a research network supporting trade and gender work at the WTO.
The Congress will provide a platform to draw attention to the findings of published or soon-to-be published research conducted by trade and gender experts and aims to promote innovative research in this field. Submissions are open for both members and non-members of the Hub.

The theme of the Congress is intended to highlight the trade and gender issues related to the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. It also provides an opportunity to deepen understanding of how women's empowerment can help countries overcome future crises, whether environmental, financial or food security related — and how trade can contribute to this. The Hub further invites participants to reflect on the extent to which trade can accelerate recovery and help rebuild a gender-responsive economic environment after crises.

The Congress Committee welcomes proposals on the following sub-themes, among others:

• Trade, gender and sustainable development
• Trade, employment and gender
• Trade, foreign investment and gender
• Trade, COVID-19 and gender
• Trade, gender and standards
• Gender, trade facilitation and crises
• Gender, infrastructure and crises
• Aid for trade, gender and recovery
• Role of the WTO and trade to promote gender equality in crises
• Role of women in trade during crises
• Role of free trade agreements for an inclusive solution to crises
• Trade, women entrepreneurs and recovery
• Trade, gender and innovation

Applicants are invited to submit a detailed abstract defining their research questions, methodological approach, and outcomes. The abstract should mention where the research has been published. If the paper has not yet been published, the abstracts must include sufficient detail to provide a sufficient understanding of the work expected in the final paper.

Applications should be submitted to [email protected] with the subject “WTCG — Call for Papers” by 1 July 2022.

Selected applicants will be notified at the latest by 1 September 2022.
The Congress will be a public event open to academics, students, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, the private sector, and delegations of WTO members.
