PEP publicizes news and events from the development research community that may be of interest to its members.
The Poverty Reduction, Equity, and Growth Network (PEGNet) is calling for papers to be presented at the 2017 PEGNet Conference in Cotonou, Benin, October 11-12, 2018. The conference theme for this year is “Improving the quality of education and learning outcomes in developing countries”.
The Conference will provide a platform for high-level dialogue between development researchers, practitioners and policy-makers working on Poverty Reduction, Inequality, Growth and other related topics in Development Economics.
The two conference days will feature parallel-sessions based on invited and contributed papers and project presentations. These will be complemented by a debate, a round-table discussion, and keynote speeches by Felipe Barrear-Osorio from the Harvard Graduate School of Education as well as Modibo Sidibe from Duke University.
Contributed papers will be selected based on three-page extended abstracts or full papers that focus on policy-relevant topics in development economics. Priority will be given to empirical research with clear implications for policy design and implementation. Submissions do not have to address the conference theme.
Submission deadline: May 1, 2018
