The 2018 CEPR Public Economics Symposium will take place on 21-22 June 2018, and will be hosted by the new center of excellence: Center of Economic Behavior and Inequality (CEBI) at the University of Copenhagen.

In the afternoon of June 21, the symposium will feature three keynotes by world-leading scholars who will talk about inequality from different research perspectives:

  • Thomas Piketty (Paris School of Economics and CEPR):Rising Inequality and Globalisation
  • Ernst Fehr (University of Zurich and CEPR): Social Preferences and the Support for Redistributive Politics
  • Fatih Guvenen (University of Minnesota and NBER): Inequality: New Facts vs. Old Myths

The goal of the symposium is to provide a forum for high-quality work in public economics and to bring together around 40 economists in the field from across Europe as well as key researchers from outside the region. 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.
