CEPR Research and Policy Network on Populism Annual Meeting 2020


CEPR Research and Policy Network on Populism Annual Meeting 2020

Hosted by: Department of Economics, Stockholm University
7-8 June 2020



The spread of the coronavirus has resulted in many events around the world being cancelled, postponed or reformatted to allow for remote participation. Please note that CEPR is monitoring developments very carefully and liaising with all conference organisers regarding the best course of action to take for each event. If you are applying for or scheduled to attend one of our events, please look out for direct communications regarding your event from each organiser. If you have not yet received any specific advice we recommend that you hold off making any travel arrangements until further information has been given.



The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for high-quality research on populism and to bring together scholars of populism from across Europe as well as from outside the region (from both inside and outside the RPN). Both theoretical and empirical paper proposals are welcome.

This year, the meeting of the RPN is organised jointly with the 2020 CEPR Public Economics Annual Symposium which will be held on June 8-9. The symposium's keynote speakers will be Emmanuel Saez (UC Berkeley), Alberto Alesina (Harvard University and CEPR) and Stefanie Stantcheva (Harvard University and CEPR). The symposium will include a special morning session on June 8 dedicated to Political Economy & Public Finance to celebrate the launch of POLECON, the political economy network within the CEPR Public Economics programme. 

Should you be interested in attending the meeting, at your own expenses, please contact Laura Agustí at [email protected].
