AQR-IREA is pleased to announce the 2021 Barcelona Workshop on Regional and Urban Economics, to be held in Barcelona on October 21st-22nd, 2021 under a hybrid format. The workshop will be focused on the analysis of the determinants and impacts of internal migrations and cross-border commuting with a special focus on potential developments after the COVID-19 era. Empirical contributions will be preferred although we would like to include also some methodological papers.
Keynote speaker: Frédéric Docquier (Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research, LISER)
Presentations: We will accommodate around 6 to 9 papers, to be presented in plenary sessions that will complement the keynote speaker’s presentation. Due to the COVID pandemic, we also plan to develop the Workshop in a hybrid format.
Submission: Papers should be sent in pdf format to firstname.lastname@example.org before September 5th, 2021. Extended abstracts or incomplete drafts will also be considered, but full papers will be favoured.
Travel and accommodation costs for presenters of accepted papers will be covered by the organisers.
