Conference
New Directions in Welfare III - Economics for a better world

This will be the third international conference of economists interested in welfare economics and public policy broadly defined. This 3rd conference will follow those organised in Oxford (July 2009) and Paris (July 2011). The conference is organised by The Open University, the OECD and the University of Oxford with support from a number of other bodies, and will take place in Paris, France, on July 3-5, 2013.

The 2013 OECD-Universities Joint Conference will be informed by the work done over the past decade by economists, statisticians and social analysts to develop broad measures of well-being, and touch on some of the well-being dimensions included in recent OECD reports on the subject. The conference will feature roundtables, plenary sessions and contributed research papers on the wide range of issues that matter to the economics of human well-being. It will include three major strands: policy and empirical economics; economic theory; and econometrics. The conference may also include sessions on other relevant social sciences.

About

The New Directions in Welfare congress series for economists and policy-makers was established in Oxford initially to celebrate the 75th Birthday of Nobel Laureate Prof Amartya Sen in 2009. It continues to grow, welcomes all forms of mainstream economics research that shed light on human wellbeing and is open to presenters from around the world.

Call for papers

The conference welcomes proposals from all economists interested in supporting the conference theme though particularly in relevant areas of theory and applied econometrics. Decisions are notified about a month after the final deadline, and sometimes earlier. All participants must take up registration for the congress.

Deadline: 30 September 2012
