23 - 24 April 2020 / Bratislava, Slovakia / National Bank of Slovakia in cooperation with CompNet

Globalization and the wide acceptance of the free market paradigm followed by the expansion of the global value chains and foreign investments have supported capital-embedded technological change and knowledge transfer across transition and recently advanced economies. Deregulation and promotion of competition have increased those countries productivity tremendously. However, rising trade barriers and the fall back to nationalist thoughts might represent huge obstacles for their future growth. Moreover, while the expansion of global production networks initially helped transition countries to grow and prosper, some of these economies now may find themselves locked in the downstream part of the value chain, depleted from the most creative activities such as R&D. This may hamper the efficient labour allocation within the host economy and prevent a proper reaction to new challenges at both, micro and macro level. Also, competition among countries that have recently grown to an advanced economy status is fierce and few have any permanent competitive advantage.
At the same time, wide ranging “sustainability” concerns have become more urgent, thus defeating the traditional measures aimed to promote economic growth and help countries to escape the middle-income trap. Switch to low-carbon economies is an example of new additional challenges influencing the competitiveness of firms, industries and countries. Another concern is the increasing inequality not only among consumers, but also among firms in terms of efficiency and costs of capital, which implies that while high growth is limited to a narrow number of firms, aggregate productivity of the economy increases only slowly.
As a result, to create the new “tigers” of the future, policies need to encompass a much more complex set of issues, which may contrast with the sole objective of improving productivity.
The Competitiveness Research Network (CompNet) and the National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) are jointly calling for papers addressing one or more of the topics mentioned above from both, micro and macro level perspectives.
We are particularly interested in academic work with strong policy relevance on the following topics:
• Competitiveness policies in small open economies
• Structural transformation and distributional consequences
• Inequality and political populism
• Transition to low-carbon economies
• The interaction between monetary and competitiveness policies
• Factor reallocation and growth
• Sustainable development and middle-income trap
• New drivers of firm performance
The deadline for submission is 15 January 2020. Papers should be emailed to [email protected].

8 - 9 May 2020 / Princeton, NJ / International Economics Section at the Department of Economics of Princeton University

The Quantitative Spatial Economics Junior Workshop aims to bring together early-career researchers interested in quantitative work on the spatial economy.
We welcome submissions on a wide range of topics related to the workshop's theme. Examples of potential topics include, but are not limited to:

• The effects, benefits, and costs of large transportation infrastructure projects in the developed or developing world.
• Interregional trade and migration and its effects on economic geography, inequality, and the organization of production.
• The importance of regions for local human capital production and neighborhood effects.
• The growth and internal structure of cities, the spatial diffusion of ideas.

The workshop aims to foster a supportive community among young researchers interested in these topics and facilitate the sharing of quantitative approaches and toolkits.
The official workshop program will start at noon on May 8 at 11 AM and end on May 9 at 3 PM. The official workshop program includes a conference dinner on May 8 in Princeton. Attendees are expected to stay for the entire duration of the official workshop program.
The workshop is hosted in the International Economics Section at the Department of Economics of Princeton University. We provide up to two nights of hotel accommodation in Princeton and meals during the official workshop program for all presenters and discussants. We can also cover economy-class flights, train, and taxi tickets of up to a total of $400.
We will consider papers from Assistant Professors and Postdocs up to 4 years after the completion of their PhD and PhD students who are on the academic job market in January 2020, i.e., who will obtain their PhDs in the summer of 2020. Submissions co-authored with more senior colleagues are welcome.
To submit a paper or extended abstract, please send a PDF with the subject line "Quantitative Spatial Economics JW Submission" to qse[at]fpeckert.me. In the email, please also indicate if you are willing to serve as a discussant in the event we are unable to include your paper on the program. Papers should not yet be published. The submission deadline is February 29th, 2020. Authors will be notified of the outcome by March 15th, 2020.
The workshop is organized by Clare Balboni (cbalboni[at]mit.edu) and Fabian Eckert (feckert[at]princeton.edu). We gratefully acknowledge generous support by the spatial economics initiative of the Woodrow Wilson School and the Princeton Economics IES Section.

4 - 5 June 2020 / Zurich / KOF Swiss Economic Institute and NADEL Center for Development and Coopoeration (ETH Zurich)

 

Conference on Education and Decent Work for Youth
(LELAM2020)
4th-5th June 2020, ETH Zürich

Extended deadline: Feb. 14, 2020

Organizers: KOF Swiss Economic Institute &
NADEL Center for Development and Cooperation

Keynote speakers: 

  • Jamie McCasland (Assistant Professor of Economics, Vancouver School of Economics, University of British Colombia, Canada)
  • Jochen Kluve (Professor of Economics at the School of Business and Economics, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Head of the Evaluation Unit at KfW Development Bank, Germany)
  • Pierre Dillenbourg (Professor in Learning Technologies, School of Computer & Communication Sciences, EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland)

While primary school completion rates in low- and middle-income countries are now nearing 100%, lower-secondary school completion rates are still at only 40% in low-income countries. Alarmingly, drop-out rates from secondary school have been rising in recent years, leaving many young people worldwide in low-productivity jobs. In addition to a lack of schooling, the generally low quality of education combined with stagnant job creation have led to a precarious youth labor market situation in many countries.

Investments in education and vocational skills training can increase the likelihood that youth find productive and gainful work - a key element of inclusive growth. However, increasing participation in or the quality of education will not lead to decent employment opportunities if the skills taught do not match those demanded by the labor market. Moreover, education systems cannot operate in a vacuum: policies and institutions must support the utilization of newly acquired skills.

The aim of the Education and Decent Work for Youth (LELAM2020) conference is to provide a platform for leading scholars, practitioners and policy-makers to reflect on and discuss the drivers of high quality education and training, as well as improved working conditions, for youth in developing countries. Over two days, the conference will feature three keynote speakers, academic parallel sessions, project presentations from practice, and multiple policy plenary sessions.

We invite contributions from economics, sociology and educational science that address the following (or closely related) topics for low- and middle-income countries:

  • Factors encouraging the participation of youth in education
  • Conditions enhancing decent work for youth
  • The role of firms in improving education and youth skills
  • Incentives of firms to provide decent work for youth
  • Policies that improve access to and quality of secondary and tertiary education and vocational skills training
  • Policies for improved youth working conditions
  • Policies linking education and labor markets
  • Institutions and governance related to education and working conditions
  • Success factors and barriers to education reform
  • Measuring skills of youth in low- and middle-income countries
  • Designing and implementing surveys measuring individual and firm outcomes

11 - 12 June 2020 / Ankara, Turkey / Bilkent University and CEPR

Description
The world seems not to work as prescribed by standard theory. Why not? Why do monetary policy actions not always elicit the same financial market and real economy responses? What are the empirical regularities and the theories that help us make sense of these?

Bilkent Economics, together with CEPR, is organizing a workshop on monetary economics, with emphasis on heterogeneity of policies and responses to these. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
1. Business cycle asymmetries
2. Asymmetry of monetary policy responses to financial and real developments
3. Asymmetry of financial market and real economy responses to monetary policy
4. The presence and nature of perceived central bank private information effects
5. The effects of second moments of income/wealth/wage/price distributions on responses of first moments to monetary policy
Jonathan H. Wright (Johns Hopkins University) has agreed to be the keynote speaker of the conference. The organizers welcome submissions of relevant papers.

For more information and to apply visit the call for papers website: https://portal.cepr.org/Bilkent-Conf-June-2020.

The submission deadline is 1 March 2020 (18:00 GMT).

17 - 18 August 2020 / Palais Coburg, Vienna, Austria / WU Vienna - Research Institute for Capital Markets

Research on risk premia, factors, and predictive regressions has traditionally focused on equity markets, while research on foreign exchange has been lagging despite its huge potential. Currently, the low yield environment, large international portfolio flows and unconventional monetary policy have made it crucial for asset managers to incorporate FX strategies and FX risk management. We therefore welcome papers on FX risk premia, FX strategies, FX valuation, FX and monetary policy, Emerging Market currencies, currency pegs, FX regimes, FX and business cycle, etc.

In addition to the above-mentioned research themes, we particularly encourage the submission of papers that deal with the interaction of FX and bond markets.
