Making science work for development

Symposium on Economic Experiments in Developing Countries

20 - 21 April

The 2017 Symposium on Economic Experiments in Developing Countries (SEEDEC) to be held at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK on 20 and 21 April 2017.

The aim of the conference is to bring together the community of scholars who employ laboratory experimental economics methods for research in developing countries. Keynote speakers are Eliana La Ferrara (Bocconi University) and  Macartan Humphreys (Columbia University). The conference will consist of plenary and parallel sessions.

Submissions are invited for papers that reflect SEEDEC’s broad research agenda which includes studies involving lab experiments in the field (in contrast to focusing on the randomized evaluations that have become widespread in development economics in recent years). The choice of papers will be based on full paper submissions, which should be submitted via the online form by  January 22, 2017
