Inaugural conference

NICEP Inaugural Conference, Nottingham (UK), June 20-21, 2016

The Nottingham Interdisciplinary Centre for Economic and Political Research (NICEP) inaugural conference was held at The University of Nottingham, UK on June 20-21, 2016.

NICEP promotes interdisciplinary research at the cross roads between Economics and Politics in four main areas: representation, political behavior, political economy and public policy, and quality of government. Theoretical and empirical papers related to these areas are particularly welcome.

The conference hosted invited sessions with Timothy Besley (LSE), Catherine De Vries (Oxford), Andrew Hall (Stanford), Adam Meirowitz (Princeton), Massimo Morelli (Bocconi), James Snyder (Harvard), Dominik Hangartner (LSE). We further welcomed Timothy Hatton (Essex and ANU), Alan Manning (LSE and Migration Advisory Committee), Ewen Macleod (Head of the Policy Development and Evaluation Service UNHCR) and László Andor (Hertie School of Governance, former EU commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion) for a roundtable discussion on “Political and Economic Responses to Mass Migration”.

The conference was generously supported by the School of Economics and the School of Politics and International Relations, as well as the University’s Discipline Bridging Award. The Round table event was funded by the University’s Research Priority Area “Understanding Human Behaviour”.
