Launched in 2002, this conference has become the most important yearly conference in public economics in Europe. It aims to promote and diffuse high quality research, with a special emphasis on articles that shed light on ’real world’ policy making. In this sense, this conference is in the spirit of the project developed by the late Louis-André Gérard-Varet. This path is followed by the research community at the Aix-Marseille School of Economics (AMSE) and through valorisation of research and policy analysis at the "Institut d’Economie Publique" (IDEP - French institute for public economics).

Keynote speakers

Kaushik Basu, World Bank & Cornell University
François Bourguignon, Paris School of Economics
Pierre-André Chiappori, Columbia University
Kai A. Konrad, Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance
