The Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI) invites submissions of original unpublished papers on economic integration in Asia and Europe: how it evolved, where it is headed, what the two regions have in common, and what their differences are. Selected papers will be presented at a seminar to be held in an ADB member country. Participation costs will be covered for one presenter of each accepted paper. The presenter must be a citizen of an ADB member country.
Abstracts (300 words) must be submitted no later than 30 December 2018 as a Word document containing a title, name, and affiliation of the author(s), contact information, and appropriate fields (JEL classifications). However, early applications with a full paper are preferred. Only papers written in English will be considered. Authors of selected papers will be notified by 30 January 2019 or earlier. A full draft paper should be submitted by 30 March 2019. (Date and place of seminar will be announced later.)
