The Catalan Economic Society will be holding its 2nd Winter Workshop on 20 December 2019, at the Institut d’Estudis Catalans, in Barcelona. We encourage submissions in all fields of economics, especially (but not exclusively) from members of the Catalan economics diaspora.

Submissions, including a complete draft, should be sent to before 11 October 2019.

The Scientific Committee is made up of Enriqueta Aragones (IAE-CSIC and Barcelona GSE), Jaume Ventura (CREI, UPF and Barcelona GSE) and Elisabet Viladecans (IEB and UB).

The program of the previous edition can be found here.

We regret to inform that no funding is available for workshop participants.
