*UPDATED* First Annual Workshop of the CEPR Research and Policy Network on Populism: July 1st and 2nd, 2019


 

The Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) has recently created a new research and policy network with the goal of building a community of researchers around a particular topic and to ensure that policy issues are considered over a longer time period.

One of the topics that has been chosen is "populism" and the Department is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the first annual workshop on July 1st and 2nd!

It will be an occasion to bring together researchers from a number of disciplines (economics, history, political science,..) the purpose being to cement the CEPR's Research and Policy Network (RPN) on Populism and become the leading forum for constructive contributions in this area. It is expected that it will become a key source of expertise on understanding the drivers and implications of the recent rise of populism and potential policy solutions.

Organizer: Sergeï GURIEVProfessor of Economics (on leave) and Chief Economist at the EBRD, is the leader of this new RPN that is expected to become a key source of expertise on understanding the drivers and implications of the recent rise of populism and potential policy solutions.
