London School of Economics


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 and key researchers from outside the region.
Paper proposals are invited in any area of public economics broadly defined (including tax and transfer policy, public goods, social insurance, income distribution, political economy, organisation in the public sector, and public policy issues more generally). Both theoretical and empirical work is welcome.

This year, the symposium includes a special theme on "Public Economics and Development" and one day of the conference will be devoted to papers on this topic.
