Paris Empirical Political Economy Seminar

Welcome to the homepage of the Paris Empirical Political Economy Seminar, a new monthly seminar series co-organized by the Department of Economics at Sciences Po and the Paris School of Economics.

 

The PEPES seminar series is a forum for front-line research in applied political economy providing top international scholars in the field with the opportunity to present their work. The seminar also aims to provide a common platform in which researchers working in this field in the Paris area may come together.

 

Seminars will be held on Thursday from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM (sandwiches are served, but only for registered participants). To register for the seminar’s mailing list or to schedule a meeting with one of the speakers, please contact the organizers Oliver Vanden Eynde (PSE) and Quoc-Anh (QA) Do.


Participants can register for seminars here.
