Download Call for papers

This call invites you to submit a paper or express your interest in attending the above Summer Institute which will be hosted this year by Guanghua School of Management at Peking University between June 22nd and June 24 2012. The workshop intends to group together the best scholars working on China in China, the US and Europe with other top level scholars who have an interest in working on China in the future. We welcome applications not only from those who want to present their research on China but also from anybody who has an interest in doing serious economic research on China and would like to use the workshop as means of exploring this possibility.

The Summer Institute will bring together between 20 and 30 participants for a period of three days. During the workshop, there will be seminar presentations and free time to allow scholars to interact and explore the possibility of doing joint research projects. Senior scholars who will attend will be available for consultations with junior scholars, usually during the afternoons and there will be some lectures by senior scholars. The Summer Institute will take place at the same time as the BREAD Summer school that will take place in the same location.

The scientific committee of the China Economic Summer Institute is composed of Chongen Bai, Robin Burgess, Hongbin Cai, Chang-Tai Hsieh, Hongbin Li, Albert Park, GĂ©rard Roland, Jo Swinnen, Shang-Jin Wei and Yaohui Zhao.
Papers for possible presentation at the meeting or expressions of interest in attending the meeting should be e-mailed to using the attached form by 18:00 GMT on March 19th, 2012.

We can cover economy apex travel and accommodation costs for selected paper presenters and participants. Please indicate when you reply whether you will require this funding or whether you will be able to cover your own travel costs. Please note that it will not be possible to accept all applications to attend this Summer Institute. At the moment, funding is available for travel and accommodation expenses in accordance with standard guidelines (economy apex travel) but, where possible, it is hoped that some of the selected participants will use grants at their disposal to cover expenses and thereby free up space for others.

If you need further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely
