This Event is no longer receiving submissions.

The CEPR symposium of the Development Economics Programme will be hosted by Stockholm School of Economics on Thursday 19 May and Friday 20 May 2022. The conference is organised by Misum at Stockholm School of Economics (SSE), SITE (Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics) and CEPR. We now invite submissions from interested researchers, including non-CEPR affiliates, on any topic within the area of Development Economics. The deadline for submission is 28 February 2022. We accept both full-length papers and extended abstracts for projects at an advanced stage.

A pre-conference session will also be arranged in the morning of 19 May, mainly for junior faculty to get the opportunity to present their work. Please use the same submission process, selecting the “Pre-Conference” session in your application, if you would like your work to be considered only for this part of the conference.

Based on information currently available, we plan an in-person event at the Stockholm School of Economics. This plan is subject to changes depending on the COVID-19 situation. The organisers will continue to monitor the situation and will switch to a remote event if necessary.

The sponsoring institutions can cover accommodation and travel expenses according to the CEPR guidelines for presenters. However, funding is limited and we encourage participants who have research funds available to use their own funds so that resources can be preferentially channelled to junior participants.
