The 2022 Workshop

2022 Economics & Politics Workshop

The 5th Economics and Politics Workshop will be held in Lille 12-13 December.
This year, it is organized by LEM (University of Lille),
with the support of Centre Emile Bernheim Dulbea (ULB) and LIEPP (Sciences Po Paris).

The workshop’s aim is to bring together scholars from economics and politics interested in interdisciplinary work on public policy, political economy and public choice. We welcome theoretical as well as empirical papers by both economists and political scientists. The workshop is intended for the presentation of work-in-progress that can benefit from discussion. The selection of papers will be based on their quality and the overall coherence of the program.

There are no parallel sessions. Participation in the workshop is subject to participation in all sessions. To facilitate and improve discussions, time devoted to presentation and discussion will be equivalent. For each paper, at least two discussants will be designated. There is no conference fee. Young scholars can apply for a scholarship. To support young researchers (up to two years after PhD), the organizers may cover travel expenditures and accommodation for up to four researchers (max 500 euros each). Please, indicate whether you apply for these scholarships in your submission and where you would travel from.

Those interested in discussing a paper or willing to take part to the event should contact the local organizers:
