This 2018 Doctoral Workshop of the Development Economics Committee of the German Economic Association (Entwicklungsökonomischer Ausschuss – Verein für Socialpolitik) will be organized by Prof. Tilman Brück at ISDC – International Security and Development Center in Berlin. The workshop will take place on 6 and 7 September 2018.
The aims of the Doctoral Workshop 2018 are:
- to enable advanced doctoral students in development economics at German-language universities to improve their ongoing research,
- to advise on the preparation of a refereed journal article,
- to practice academic discussion with like-minded students from other universities, and
- to establish an informal network of young scholars in the field.
The two-day seminar will be conducted entirely in English.
Preconditions for participation are a registration as a doctoral student at a university in a German-speaking country in the field of development economics, fluent command of English and one draft research paper at the time of application. Selection will be restricted to a maximum of ten doctoral students. Preference will be given to students whose supervisor is a member of the Development Economics Committee and to students whose supervisor is committed to attend the workshop. Participants are responsible to organise and fund their own accommodation and travel arrangements.
Please send extended abstracts (2-3 pages) or full papers and a short cv (as pdf files) by 15 June 2018 to Mira Purska at firstname.lastname@example.org. If possible, please also submit a letter of support from the supervisor (as a pdf file), stating if the supervisor is able and willing to attend the workshop as well. Decisions will be communicated by late June 2018.
