RUCAM Political Economy Workshop/Conference from Wednesday, 23 August (early morning), to Friday, 25 August 2023 (after award dinner).

Based on the workshop presentations there will be a special issue of the European Journal of Political Economy on “Political Competition and Public Policy in Liberal Democracies”. Papers may be empirical, experimental or theoretical.

The goal of the workshop/conference is (i) to learn about analytical modelling approaches in a particular area of political economy; (ii) to promote the exchange of research ideas in empirical and analytical political economy; and (iii) create a network of researchers. The workshop/conference consists of

  • Graduate teaching by Allan Drazen (professor, University of Maryland) and Stanley Winer (professor, Carleton University) in the mornings;
  • Research presentations (45 min.) by participants in the afternoons, with Prof Drazen and/or Prof Winer being present;
  • Evening activities (1. panel on research strategies in political economy; 2. cooking workshop with gala dinner; 3. award dinner).

The graduate teaching: analytical modelling approaches to understanding democracy: Topic 1: Political Competition and Public Economics; Topic 2: Political Competition and Political Budget Cycles.

Your research presentations: You will present your own paper and benefit from feedback from a discussant and from the experts. We welcome empirical and theoretical papers from a wide range of topics such as (but not limited to) the economics and politics of public and non-market decision-making, political economy, public policy and the economics of institutions. Your discipline could be economics, political science, another social science or physics.

The cooking workshop: We’ll cook our own gala dinner. We’ll be split in groups to prepare parts of our own dinner (soup, entrée, main course(s) and desert) and then enjoy it together.
