Graduate Students'

in International Economics


The GSIE Seminar aims to provide a platform for PhD students recent, graduates in International Economics and visitors to present their research and receive feedback from other students and researchers. While primarily established for students at the Paris School of Economics and Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, we gladly welcome presentations and blog contributions by students from other institutions.

The seminar takes place on Monday, 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm.

The GSIE Seminar is jointly organized by Lionel Fontagné and Thierry Verdier with the assistance of Nevine El-Mallakh and Pauline Wibaux.

This seminar is supported by the Paris School of Economics and the University Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne .
