The workshop program is available here (updated 19 June and includes Book of Abstracts).


We are pleased to announce a special issue on Discrimination and Diversity in the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization.

The special issue has been inspired by the success of the annual Discrimination and Diversity Workshop series. In this spirit, we particularly encourage submissions that fit within one or more of these subthemes that have been featured in current/previous iterations of the workshop.

The deadline for submissions is 10 January 2024.

Please find more details of the Call for Papers here.
