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) with the goal of maintaining a strong and inclusive NEWEPS community.
The conference will be hosted at NYU on Friday, April 22, 2022. The workshop deadlines are:
March 28, 2022: Submission deadline for papers
April 5, 2022: Notification of selection
April 15, 2022: Final submission of papers before conference
