The ZEW – Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research is pleased to announce the call for papers for its 21st ZEW Summer Workshop for Young Economists – Advances in Empirical Public Economics. The workshop will take place in Mannheim on 17-19 July 2019.
This year’s workshop will cover recent topics and methods adopted in empirical public economics. A particular focus will be on causal inference as well as structural methods in public policy evaluations. We particularly welcome empirical submissions from the fields of public finance and social policy as well as methodological contributions in tax policy and public policy evaluations in a broader sense.
David Agrawal (University of Kentucky), Eckhard Janeba (University of Mannheim) and Juan Carlos Suárez Serrato (Duke University and NBER) will give the keynote lectures.
Advanced doctoral students and postdocs who have completed their thesis within the last three years are invited to submit a paper. The ZEW Summer Workshop is open to a maximum of 15 participants. You can submit a paper (preliminary versions are welcome) and your CV no later than 15 April 2019 to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
