The theme of the 2019 CEPR Public Economics Annual Symposium is "Public Finance: Macro Insights" , therefore the papers presented duirng the two day conference will pose particular interest in topics related to macroeconomic approaches and insights to our understanding of recent inequality trends, the effects of public policies, such as social insurance or tax and transfer programs, and their welfare consequences.
The goal of the symposium is to provide a forum for high-quality work in public economics and to bring together economists in the field from across Europe as well as key researchers from outside the region.

Our keynote speaker for the conference will be Iván Werning (MIT).

The event provides an opportunity for researchers from different universities and countries to discuss their work in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop long-term collaborative relationships. It also provides an opportunity for young researchers to meet and discuss their work with senior economists. The conference brings together around 40 economists for a period of two days. To foster the desired interaction we ask that participants stay for the entire duration of the symposium.
