CEPR Eighth European Workshop on Household Finance

Melbourne, Australia



The CEPR Network on Household Finance and Monash Business School are organising the Eighth European Workshop on Household Finance on 19-22 April 2023 with the support of the PhD programme at EDHEC, London Business School and Queen Mary University of London. The objective of this workshop is to host presentations and foster interaction between senior and junior researchers working in the area of household finance. The research workshop will include an evening event organised by Kaveh Majlesi (Monash University and CEPR) on Wednesday 19 April 2023, 16:00-18:00 local time. The workshop will include state-of-the-art research on household financial behaviour and on how this is influenced by other choices, government policies, and the overall economic environment. This will take place from Thursday 20 until Saturday 22 April from 16:00 to 20:00 local time each day and in a hybrid format.

We solicit papers in the following areas, but other related areas may also be considered:

• Patterns of asset allocation and debt behaviour over the life cycle
• Financing retirement and the demographic transition
• Consumer indebtedness, financial distress and default decisions
• Behavioural approaches to household finances
• Financial literacy and financial education programmes
• Trust, subjective expectations, pessimism, and financial decisions
• International comparisons of household finances using micro-data
• Cognitive and genetic studies on individual financial performance
• Financial advice and legal protection of investors and borrowers
• The impact of technology on household financial behaviour

The organisers encourage submissions from PhD students in household finance. Students must apply online stating that they are a PhD student and supply their CV. Students should note that, from 2020 on, the best student paper prize will only be awarded once a year at the Household Finance Conference which takes place every Autumn. So, students who want their paper to be considered for the prize should submit it to the Autumn conference, but they are welcome to submit another paper to the Spring workshop.
