Call for Papers | ECONtribute Research Workshop: CEPR Women in Economics Workshop in Micro- & Applied Economics


ECONtribute and CEPR cordially invite submissions to the inaugural Micro- & Applied Microeconomics workshop, under the CEPR’s Women in Economics initiative on September 9-10 2021. This workshop will be a collaboration between CEPR and the University of Cologne, with the support of the ECONtribute: Markets & Public Policy Cluster of Excellence.

The aim of this workshop is to host presentation and foster interaction between female researchers working in the areas of microeconomics and applied microeconomics/-econometrics.

For this inaugural workshop, we particularly invite submissions by female researchers in the following areas, but other related areas may also be considered:

  • Crime and risky behaviours
  • Inequality, discrimination and equal opportunity


Keynote lectures given by Anna Aizer (Brown University) and Randi Hjalmarsson (University of Gothenburg and CEPR) and about 6 to 8 contributed papers.


We hope that the workshop can take place physically in Cologne, Germany on September 9-10 2021. Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation and travel restrictions, the workshop will be organised in hybrid format such that those who cannot travel can join virtually. In case that the workshop cannot take place in person at all, it will be become a completely virtual workshop.

Programme committee:

Michele Belot (Cornell University and CEPR), Anna Bindler (University of Cologne and CEPR), Pia Pinger (University of Cologne and CEPR), Anna Raute (Queen Mary University of London and CEPR), Johanna Rickne (Stockholm University and CEPR).
