CALL FOR PAPERS

The GPEN Conference is expected to be of medium size, aimed at researchers in international economics, political economy, development economics and international business, as well as at policymakers. We have given a fairly broad theme of "An Age Of Uncertainty", but we are interested in papers from all aspects of international political economy. In particular, we would hope to see papers on:

  • International trade policy and agreements
  • Multinational firms
  • Macroeconomic effects of international policy shocks
  • Policy development and practice

Papers from both experienced researchers and from PhD and early career researchers are welcome. We expect to accept a high proportion of submissions.

 Journal symposium/special issues

  • We have been invited to submit a symposium to the World Economy.
  • Invitation to submit papers to Economic Modelling
