CALL FOR PAPERS


The University of Strasbourg, the Bureau for Economic Theory and Applications and the ERMEES research team are delighted to announce a one-day workshop to be held on Friday October 13, 2017 in Strasbourg.


This workshop aims at providing some perspectives on the macroeconomic issues raised by heterogeneities in the EU, with a special focus on structure, cost and management of these heterogeneities. The main purpose of this workshop is to produce high quality debates and to draw some perspectives on the future of the European project. We invite the submission of papers on various topics related to heterogeneities or asymmetries in the EU; both empirical and theoretical papers are welcome. All presentations and discussions will be in English.


Paper topics include:
— Structural heterogeneities between EU or EMU member countries
— Business cycle asymmetries
— Fiscal policy and public finance, fiscal multipliers
— Monetary policy, monetary and financial integration, optimal currency area
— Transmission channels of economic policy, policy rules
— External imbalances (current account balances, exchange rates)
— Labor markets and social cohesion
— Euro-zone crisis and the political lessons


Keynote speakers: Iain Begg (European Institute, London School of Economics), Paul de Grauwe (European Institute, London School of Economics), Cinzia Alcidi (Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), Brussels).
