Women in International Economics Conference

The goal of this conference is to enhance diversity within the field of international economics by providing junior women with a forum to present work and receive constructive feedback and mentorship. We hope that the conference will facilitate the development of networks between junior and senior women in the field. ***

*** We adopt the same definition of the term junior woman as the Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession (CSWEP) of the American Economic Association: “The term junior woman usually refers to anyone identifying as a woman or nonbinary who is untenured, or who has received a PhD less than seven years ago; but could also refer to a woman who has not yet presented papers widely.”
