Twice a year, in the spring and fall, NES organizes international conferences that attract a broad audience of economists who discuss their research with MAE students. While the fall conference (in October-November) brings speakers who are NES faculty and researchers from other economics departments, the spring conference (in April) hosts second-year MAE students as its main presenters – giving students the chance to see how much student research can accomplish. Each conference also features one or two Distinguished Lectures given by renowned economists. Beyond these regular conferences, the New Economic School occasionally holds thematic conferences in cooperation with other Russian research universities.
The 4th Workshop on Relational Contracts will be hosted by the Becker-Friedman Institute and the Coase-Sandor Institute for Law and Economics at the University of Chicago on September 14 – 15, 2018. Marta Troya-Martinez co-organizes the workshop. The call for papers can be found here. Submissions are welcome until April 10.
