We are happy to consider submissions on topics at the union or intersection of institutions, international trade, and economic development.  In the spirit of a workshop, papers do not have to be complete.

The aim is to have 25-40 participants with no parallel sessions.

The workshop will take place at The Inn at the 5th with catering by Marché.

There is an attendance fee of US$160 – online payment will be available soon.

Paper sessions will end at mid-day on the 14th, and the plan is to offer participants the opportunity to golf, hike, or go on a wine tour that afternoon.
