The Shadow 2021 conference aims at bringing together researchers studying the shadow economy, tax systems and tax compliance, and questions related to the evolution, functions, and design of formal and informal institutions, social and cultural norms and customs, and psychological aspects of tax behaviour. It will provide a great opportunity for scholars across disciplines to explore and discuss recent developments in these fields.
Submissions of extended abstracts (up to 1000 words) or full papers addressing the conference topics, or related issues, are welcome. Papers may be either theoretical or empirical, experimental, agent-based simulations, etc. Submissions can be made until May 31st, 2021, using the submission form available here. Acceptance decisions will be communicated no later than July 15, 2021.
Papers presented at the conference may be submitted to the conference committee shortly after the conference to be considered for inclusion in a special issue of the Journal of Institutional Economics and in a special section of the Economic Systems journal. Additional publication opportunities are being investigated and will be communicated in due course via the conference website. All papers submitted for publication will be subject to the standard refereeing process of the respective journal.
