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.
