Eighth CEPR Economic History Symposium

The Graduate Institute, Geneva and the University of Geneva

12-13 June 2020

Generously supported by The Graduate Institute, Geneva, the University of Geneva, the Swiss National Bank and CEPR 


The spread of the coronavirus has resulted in many events around the world being cancelled, postponed or reformatted. The organisers have decided to postpone the Eighth Economic History Symposium to June 2021. We will be circulating a new Call for Papers in due course.

The symposium aims to bring together leading researchers in the field. Papers are being sought on topics including, but not necessarily limited to:

  • Macroeconomic and financial history
  • Economic growth in the very long run
  • Institutions and economic development
  • The history of the international economy
