Political Economy WIP

This seminar series is jointly organized by the Department of Economics and Finance and the Department of International Economics Institutions and Development and aims to set up regular meetings where people interested in political economy (both applied and theoretical) discuss new research ideas and present works in progress in an informal and lively setting.  

Meetings are held in person, on Tuesdays from 17 to 18,  with an informal follow up. Early-stage projects and presentations from junior scholars are more than welcome.
