Call for Papers

We are happy to announce that the 14th Annual Meeting of the Portuguese Economic Journal, organized by CEGE (Research Centre in Management and Economics), will take place at Católica Porto Business School, University Católica Portuguesa, on July 2-4, 2021.

At the moment, we expect the conference to take place in a hybrid format, with a mix of participants physically present at the conference and others participating online. However, the evolution of the pandemic may change this, namely due to the legal and regulatory restrictions that may be enacted in Portugal at the time of the conference. If that is the case, the conference will be held in a purely online format. We will keep all participants informed at all times of our decisions.

Keynote speakers

Ana Rute Cardoso (Institute for Economic Analysis – CSIC and Barcelona GSE)
Beata Javorcik (University of Oxford)
