The literature on Public Policy Evaluation has been steadily growing in recent years in relation to both the impact of such policies on economic growth and on their distributional effects in developed countries. The integration of the explanatory potential of macro and microsimulation models to evaluate the impact of tax and expenditure policies is a key research topic in Economics nowadays. In general, the main aim of these analyses is to serve as a guide for public policy design.
Aiming to provide an opportunity to bring together relevant research work in the field of public policy evaluation, both from the micro and macro traditions, we are pleased to announce a specialized Workshop on “Public policy Evaluation” that will take place on January 24-25, 2019 in Oviedo (Spain). The EC Joint Research Centre is actively participating in the Workshop organization. The Workshop will combine relevant keynote speakers with contributed papers, and will run in parallel to the “26th Meeting of Public Economics”.
Contributed papers topics may focus on any of the following main areas of research:
Full papers should be in English and be submitted electronically by 15 October 2018 using the the Conference Maker and selecting the following submission topic: “Workshop-public-policy-evaluation”.
Acceptance decisions will be communicated by mid November 2018. The scientific committee of the Workshop is the same as the one of the “26th Meeting of Public Economics” (see here).
