Call for papers – 2021 Edition.
PARIS, November 22–23, 2021
*** DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF PAPERS : September 6, 2021 ***
Since 2018, the Centre d’Économie de la Sorbonne (CES) organizes a workshop on the role of formal and informal institutions in economic choices and, ultimately, on growth and development.
The workshop features contributions in the fields of development economics, political economics, economic history, law and economics, environmental economics, financial economics, economics of migration, labour and family economics.
Different approaches, ranging from empirical, to historical, experimental, or theoretical are welcome.
Individuals, entrepreneurs, and policy-makers make relevant choices taking into account specific constraints of the households, organizations, markets, and countries in which they live and operate. Accordingly, an enormous body of research has discussed how such constraints are shaped by social and legal norms, which in turn arise from traditions, culture and political choices.
In the light of existing literature, further research is needed to improve the understanding of these “humanly devised constraints” and the related policy implications.
This workshop aims at creating a forum to discuss cutting-edge research connecting in a causal way institutional features to economic outcomes in well-defined contexts to take into account relevant heterogeneity between societies and economic environments when formulating policy implications.
SUBMISSION OF PAPERS
Researchers interested in presenting their work at the workshop can send a .pdf file of the draft paper (or long abstract) to firstname.lastname@example.org before September 6, 2021.
