CEPR Development Economics Programme and Swedish Development Economics Network are organizing a joint Conference on Development Economics on 9 and 10 March 2007 in Stockholm. The conference is funded by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA). The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for high quality work in development 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 development economics broadly defined. Both theoretical and empirical work is welcome.
The organizers will bring together around 30 economists for a period of two days (Friday, 9 March and Saturday, 10 March 2007). To foster the desired interaction we ask that participants stay for the entire duration of the Conference.
