Political Economy: Theory meets Empirics
I am a co-organiser of the annual Workshop "Political Economy: Theory meets Empirics." The idea of the Workshop is to bring together leading international researchers who work in Political Economy to discuss the latest research in the field. One prime goal of the workshop is to foster the dialog between theorists and empirically working researchers with the aim of facilitating fruitful future research collaborations. Another goal is to discuss recent political events and developments, thereby reaching out to a broader audience and policy makers.
I also co-organised the 2nd annual Workshop of the Political Economy UK Group (PolEconUK) in June 2018 in Bath.
