FURTHER INFORMATION:

The conference will be held at the Hotel Schweizerhof in the mountain resort of Lenzerheide, Switzerland (http://www.schweizerhof-lenzerheide.ch). The academic programme starts Monday morning (March 13) at 08:00 and ends Wednesday (March 15) before noon. Due to capacity constraints, preference will be given to participants who can stay for the whole duration of the conference. Participants should plan to arrive Sunday afternoon (March 12) and leave Wednesday afternoon (March 15). There will be around thirteen papers and discussions (including one session covered by the BIS and possibly one session for advanced PhD students), and there will also be poster sessions featuring around sixteen posters. However ample time for discussion, reflection and outdoor activities will be left for sure.

The sponsors will cover the accommodation costs and meals during the conference. The submission fee for the Review of Finance will be waived for all conference papers submitted to the Review within six months after the conference takes place. A Special Issue with Thorsten Beck (Cass Business School & CEPR) as Editor is also being planned.

12/03/2017 CEPR-NYUAD Workshop on Drivers of Economic Divergence: Institutions, Geography and Technology, Abu Dhabi

Organizers: Stephen N Broadberry
The gap between per capita incomes in the richest and poorest counties has never been as large as it is today. What explains the historical origins of the divergence of economic fortunes between world regions, and why does it seem to be so persistent? What insights can we gain by examining the divergence from the perspective of developing world regions in Asia or Africa? We invite all papers focusing on the analysis of the institutional, geographical and technological causes of the divergence. Furthermore, papers able to add new insights on the measurement and extent of the divergence are appreciated. Special preference will be given to papers with a geographic concentration on Africa or Asia.
