Third and final ESRC LSE/UCL workshop on structural reforms and European integration (London March 30, 2020)

This spring, we are organizing a third workshop on structural reforms and European integration. We have been commissioned by the Journal of Economic Literature to survey the state of structural reforms research and would like to open the workshop with a brief presentation of our outline and plans. We would like to use the opportunity of this workshop to receive your comments, criticisms and suggestions as well as to become familiar with your latest research so that it is properly acknowledged in our survey.

We would like to bring together researchers working on structural reforms. The following are among the topics we would like the workshop to cover:

  • Globalization, European Integration and Structural Reforms 
  • Income Inequality and Structural Reforms in the EU
  • Convergence, Growth and Structural Reforms in the EU
  • Capital, Labour and Product Market Reforms in the EU
  • Country case studies covering some of the above topics

The workshop will be held in London on Monday March 30, 2020.

If you are interested in participating and would like to present your work, please let us know at your earlier convenience but please no later than Friday 31 January 2020. We welcome submissions either in an abstract or working paper forms.  We can cover your costs of travel and lodging. More information about our past workshops and the ESRC project, please visit our official website.

You may wish to submit your paper presented at the workshop for publication in a Special Issue of Comparative Economic Studies.

Please send your submission by email to: yuemei.ji@ucl.ac.uk
