We invite submissions for the inaugural conference on the Political Economy of Aid. The conference is hosted by University College Dublin on October 12-13, 2023. The conference looks to bring together economists and political scientists to address political economy issues related to all types of international development assistance. Topics might include issues of development assistance allocation, effectiveness, mechanisms of delivery, or bureaucratic organization from the perspective of state and non-state donor partners, host governments, and non-governmental organizations in host countries.
Submission of Papers
Both empirical and theoretical papers will be considered. Please submit full papers or extended abstracts to email@example.com. The deadline for submission is May 15, 2023. We will make decisions by June 15, 2023.
Conference Format, Attendance, and Registration
The number of participants will be limited to about 25 to allow for in-depth discussion of each paper. Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the entire conference. Thanks to generous support from the Irish Research Council via the project “Trade-Related Assistance for Development, Evidence from Microlevel Evaluations” (TRADE ME) (IRCLA/2017/92), there is no conference or registration fee. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided on the days of the conference. Travel and accommodation are at the expense of participants.
The conference will be held at University College Dublin’s Belfield Campus in Dublin, Ireland. Dublin International Airport (DUB) is 45-60 minutes from campus, by taxi or bus.
