Call for Papers: Workshop EP@B, Economics & Politics at Bruxelles

December, 16-17, 2019, Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium)

Following the 2018 Economics and Politics at Lille (EP@L), the 2019 Economics and Politics Workshop will take place at Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and become EP@B, jointly organized by Centre Emile Bernheim (ULB), Dulbéa (ULB), CEE  (Sciences Po Paris), and LEM (University of Lille). The workshop aims to bring together scholars from economics and political science interested in interdisciplinary work on political economy. We welcome theoretical as well as empirical papers by both economists and political scientists. Papers covering issues in all usual areas of political economy are welcome. The workshop is intended for presentation of papers-in-progress that can benefit from discussion. Selection of papers will be based on their quality with the aim to offer a coherent program. Submissions by graduate students and recent graduates of thesis chapters are welcome.

Workshop Organization
There are no parallel sessions. Participation in the workshop implies participation in all sessions. To facilitate and improve discussions, the time devoted to presentation and discussion will be equivalent. For each paper, at least one discussant will be designated. There is no conference fee. Young scholars (up to two years after PhD) can apply for a scholarship.

Deadlines and submissions
Extended abstract or a copy of the paper in pdf format should be sent to by October 18, 2019. Authors will be notified by November 1st and agree to send at least a draft version of their paper by December 1st, 2019. Those interested in discussing a paper or willing to take part in the event could contact the organizers. To support young researchers (up to two years after PhD), the organizers can cover travel expenditures and accommodation for up to four researchers (max 500 euros each). Please, indicate whether you apply for those scholarships in your submission and where you would travel from.
