MoPED Workshop

Berlin Meeting on the Political Economy of Development (MoPED)

The next Berlin Meeting on the Political Economy of Development (MoPED), organized by the Institutions and Political Inequality (IPI) unit at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center, will take place on July 1-2, 2024.

The MoPED workshop offers an opportunity for scholars who focus on the political economy of development, broadly defined, to build community and foster collaboration. The workshop will consist of in-depth discussions of approximately 8 papers and/or research designs over two days. We particularly welcome works-in-progress that address (but are not limited to) governance, corruption, misinformation, conflict and violence, intergroup relations, and migration.

The meeting will be held in person at the WZB in Berlin, Germany. The WZB will cover local expenses for all participants, including two hotel nights, meals, and local transport. Additionally, we can cover round-trip travel to Berlin – within Europe or from the Global South – for invited postdoctoral researchers and PhD students.

We plan to discuss up to 8 papers/research designs. If you would like to present your work for discussion, please send a title and an abstract of no more than 500 words to yuequan.guo [at] wzb.eu by March 11, 2024.
If you want to take part without a paper on the agenda, please also respond to yuequan.guo [at] wzb.eu by March 11, 2024, including a sentence or two on what motivates you to take part.
We will make decisions about the agenda by the end of March and we are available to answer any questions you may have.
