CEPR European Workshop on Household Finance

Copenhagen, 28-29 April 2017

Sponsored by Think Forward Initiative


The CEPR Network on Household Finance and the Copenhagen Business School, supported in part by the Think Forward Initiative (TFI), are organising the 2017 CEPR European Workshop on Household Finance. The objective is to present state-of-the-art empirical and theoretical research on household financial behavior and on how it is influenced by other choices, government policies, and the overall economic environment.

Top student submissions will be included in the regular workshop programme, and the best student paper will be awarded the CEPR Network Prize on Household Finance, sponsored by TFI. We solicit papers in the following areas, but other related areas may also be considered:

• Asset allocation and debt behavior over the life cycle
• Financing retirement and the demographic transition
• Consumer indebtedness, financial distress, and default decisions
• Behavioral approaches to household finance
• Financial literacy and financial education programs
• Trust, subjective expectations, pessimism, and financial decisions
• International comparisons of household finances using micro-data
• Financial advice and legal protection of investors and borrowers
