The CEPR is hosting a new webinar
- Hands reaching up in the air confronted with words demagogue, populist, autocrat
The Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) announces the creation of an online seminar series on political economy as of May 2020.
After successfully organising the first annual workshop of the Research and Policy Network (RPN) on populism last year, Sergeï GURIEV will be co-organising this new seminar series on political economy along with the CEPR Political Economy group and the RPN on conflict.
The CEPR Political Economics Webinar series will be held on the first Wednesday of every month at 15:00 London time (16:00 Paris time).
The first CEPR Political Economics Webinar will take place on May 6th, with Daron Acemoglu as its inaugural speaker. This will be followed by Guido Tabellini on June 3rd, and Eliana La Ferrara on July 1st.
The format of the webinars will be as follows: the speaker will have 60 minutes to present their research. During those 60 minutes, questions will be limited to clarifying questions. After that, there will be 15 minutes for general questions and discussions.
This webinar in political economy is for faculty members and graduate students alike and is open for registration (mandatory) now !
