Call for Papers
Organised by: Trade Policy Research Network, CEPR | Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, EUI, Florence | TEDU-Trade Research Center, Ankara | World Trade Institute, Bern
We invite submissions of papers and expressions of interest in attending the Third Empirical Investigations in Services Trade (EIST) conference. The meeting will take place on July 9-10 in Florence, Italy, hosted by the Global Governance Programme of the Robert Schuman Centre, European University Institute. The theme of the conference is economic analysis of trade and investment in services. We welcome submissions related to any aspect of international trade and investment in services, including empirical analyses of sectoral policy and regulation, trade and investment agreements, labor market adjustment and trade or investment in services, the role of services in value chains and offshoring and analysis using firm-level data.
Travel and accommodation expenses will be covered for one author of accepted papers. The meeting is open to attendees who are not presenting papers, subject to space constraints. Participants who are interested in attending must fund their own travel expenses as only limited funding is available.
Conference Format: The programme will include 10-12 papers, with one hour per paper devoted to presentation, discussant remarks, and open discussion.
The (draft) papers should be submitted by Sunday 29 April 2018. Selections will be made and authors notified by May 11. A final conference schedule will be posted on the conference website at the end of May.
