The End of Federalism?

This conference marks the end of a 4-year research programme at the WZB – hence our conference title – and aims to bring together leading economists and political scientists in the field of fiscal federalism and intergovernmental relations for a two-day workshop. It intends to provide a platform for exchanging the latest research results and ideas, to identify the main themes and problems addressed in current research and to foster the discussion of future challenges and opportunities in the field.

The conference is jointly organized by Benny Geys (WZB, Norwegian Business School BI and Vrije Universiteit Brussel), Kai A. Konrad (WZB and MPI Munich) and Ronnie Schöb (Freie Universität Berlin).
