15 - 15 May 2017 / University of Lille / University of Lille

The aim of the conference is to reflect on the limits of current data used to study migration and to connect producers and academic users of migration data. The organizing committee invites the submission of high-quality academic papers that use different datasets (administrative, survey, experimental). A roundtable will be organized with stake-holders that facilitate data collection and dissemination (DGEF, IAB, INED, OECD).

Key note speaker: Herbert BRÜCKER (University of Bamberg, IAB, IZA) “Causes and consequences of refugee migration: new evidence from the German refugee survey”

If you would like to submit a paper please send an email to [email protected]. In the case of multiple-authored papers, indicate who will present and whether or not the presenter would also be willing to act as a discussant. Authors will be notified about the acceptance of papers and the conference programme by the end of March, 2017.


7 - 7 June 2017 / Florence, Italy (EUI Premises) / Florence School of Banking and Finance (Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, European University Institute)

Deadline for registration: 17 May 2017

This one-day training course will be held by Fabio Canova (BI), Wouter den Haan (LSE) and Junior Maih (Norges Bank).

The course will present the most recent methods to study models with occasionally binding constraints and will be divided in three parts:
1. The first part of the course will deal with piecewise linear approxiations methods, presenting estimations of models solved with these techniques.
2. The second module will deal with Markov Switching specifications, solution, simulation and applications.
3. The third part of the course will present projection methods. These methods can easily deal with nonlinearities; in addition, dealing with occasionally binding constraints is trivial for projection algorithms.

It is expected that course participants have a good prior knowledge of dynamic macroeconomic models, including basic knowledge of perturbation techniques.

The PEIO conference brings together economists, political scientists and other scholars to address political-economy issues related to any international organization, including the World Trade Organization, the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the European Union, and also other international organizations that have as yet received less attention in the academic literature. Questions we seek to address include how IOs are organized and governed, what are the incentives of governments dealing with IOs as well as the incentives of the bureaucrats who staff them, and what are the effects of IOs on policy outcomes. We will also consider the interaction of IOs with transnational actors such as commercial lobbies and NGOs. Finally, we have a particular interest in the interaction of the international political economy with the domestic political economy of IO members.
