About the Symposium

The goal of the symposium is to provide a forum for high-quality work in public economics and to bring together economists in the field from across Europe as well as key researchers from outside the region.

This year's meeting features a keynote talk by Professor Emmanuel Saez, UC Berkeley, entitled How Elastic are Preferences for Redistribution? Evidence from Randomized Survey Experiments.

The symposium will also include a number of sessions devoted specifically to the theme of  "public economics and development". The event provides a unique opportunity for researchers from different universities and countries to discuss their work in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop long-term collaborative relationships.

The event will be hosted by the Suntory and Toyota International Centres for Economics and Related Disciplines (STICERD) and co-sponsored by the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) and the International Growth Centre (IGC). It is organised by Professor Oriana Bandiera and Professor Henrik Kleven.
