NEWEPS-20 (Spring 2023)

NEWEPS is a small but growing working group that brings together scholars who use cutting-edge empirical methods to study the political economy of governance, representation, development, and conflict. NEWEPS focuses on research that uses rigorous, creative methods to do micro-level analysis of key questions in comparative political economy and international relations. Field experiments, quasi-experiments, and innovative uses of administrative, remote-sensed, historical, or other behavioral data are of particular interest. 

The “conference” section of the NEWEPS website explains how conference meetings function and how papers are selected to balance various considerations (paper potential, upcoming job market paper, previous presentations and participation, and demographic and institutional diversity) to maintain a strong and inclusive NEWEPS community.

The conference will be hosted in person at Brown University in Providence, RI, in the afternoon of Friday, April 28, 2023. The workshop deadlines are as follows:

April 1, 2023: Submission deadline for papers

April 12, 2023: Notification of accepted papers

April 21, 2023: Final submission deadline
