The call for papers deadline has now passed. A programme will become available soon.

Keynote Speaker: Ugo Gentilini, Global Lead for Social Assistance, World Bank

The goal of the conference is to bring together leading economists working on public economics in developing countries. 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.

We are planning to hold the conference in person. However, if the Covid-19 situation does not allow participants to travel, we welcome attendance and presentations online. We will have blended sessions with in-person and online attendance.

Ski Day (Optional)
The Zurich Department of Economics is organizing a ski day on Wednesday 15 December 2021.

Economy class travel and hotel accommodation will be covered for presenters and discussants. Participation is free for both presenters and other participants.
