The goal of the symposium is to provide a forum for high-quality work in public economics and to bring together economists in the field
from across Europe as well as key researchers from outside the region.
The programme will focus on many areas of public economics broadly defined (including tax and transfer policy, public goods, social
insurance, income distribution, political economy, organization in the public sector, and public policy issues more generally).
Both theoretical and empirical work will be covered.
The conference hopes to provide a unique 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 aspires to provide young researchers with the opportunity to meet and discuss their work with senior economists.
