We are interested in theoretical and empirical papers that provide rigorous and original analyses addressing questions of scientific and policy importance. We particularly encourage submissions on the following topics:
This conference seeks to bring together social scientists to share and discuss cutting-edge research on climate change. We invite submissions on the themes above from scholars in the fields of economics, public policy, political science, and other quantitative disciplines. The conference will include presentations of papers, discussant feedback, and audience Q&A.
