REStud Tour 2020/21

17-21 May 2021

The Review of Economic Studies May Meetings have been held annually in May since 1989. Every year, in line with the Review’s tradition of encouraging the work of young economists, some of the most promising graduating doctoral students in economics and finance in the world are selected to present their research to audiences in Europe.

The meetings take place at the economics departments or institutes of three or four universities across Europe. Standard seminar presentations are given over two days to audiences invited by the local hosts and which include members of the journal’s editorial board.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Restud Tour in 2020 was unfortunately cancelled.

The good news is that the 2020 speakers will join the 2021 speakers to give their presentations in this year’s Restud Double Tour in May 2021!

This year, the Restud Tour 2020/21 will be online and held jointly by Paris School of Economics (Paris, PSE), New Economic School (Moscow, NES), and University of Manchester (Manchester, UoM).

Date and venue: 17-21 May 2021, Live on YouTube.
