Conference: IGC & CEPR public economics symposium 2015
The 2015 CEPR Annual Public Economics Symposium took place on 14-15 May at the London School of Economics. It was hosted by STICERD and co-funded by the IGC.
The goal of the symposium was to provide a forum for high-quality work in public economics and to bring together economists in the field from across Europe as well as key researchers from outside the region.
This year’s symposium featured a keynote talk by Professor Emmanuel Saez. The symposium also included a number of sessions devoted specifically to the theme of “public economics and development”. The event provided a unique opportunity for researchers from different universities and countries to discuss their work in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop long-term collaborative relationships. It was also a great opportunity for young researchers to meet and discuss their work with senior economists.
