Background and objective

This two-day conference in political economy is meant to be the first edition of a multi-year project that will bring together scholars from the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse (IAST), Nuffield College at Oxford University, and Sciencs Po Paris.

This workshop will give social scientists from these institutions--mainly political scientists and economists, but also scholars from other disciplines such as psychology, sociology, history, law, who work on topics broadly related to political economy--the opportunity to present work in progress, receive feedback, and mentor junior scholars.
