Nordic Conference on Development Economics 2014

Call for papers

Aalto University School of Business and UNU-WIDER in collaboration with the Nordic Network in Development Economics will organize the next Nordic Conference on Development Economics on 16-17 June 2014 in Helsinki, Finland.

Stefan Dercon (UK Department for International Development) and Jean-Philippe Platteau (University of Namur) will give keynote presentations at the conference.

As in previous conferences, we look forward to receiving papers in any field in development economics both from researchers based in the Nordic countries and elsewhere. Young authors in particular are encouraged to submit their papers. Conference participants are expected to finance their travel and accommodation at their own expense or seek support from their home universities. There will be no conference fee, and two lunches and a conference dinner will be offered to the conference participants.

Deadline for submission of paper: 15 April 2014.
Decision on submission: 15 May 2014.

We look forward to welcoming you to Helsinki.
