Seventeenth International Economic Association: Call for Registration

The Columbia Global Centers | Middle East, in collaboration with the International Economic Association (IEA), will host the IEA’s Seventeenth World Congress. Aimed to promote the interaction of prominent economists towards gaining a truly world perspective on issues of global importance, the Seventeenth World Congress is  scheduled from June 6 to 10, 2014 and will be held at the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Center (KHBTCC) in the Dead Sea, Jordan.

These world congresses are global events, and offer a unique opportunity for those in the host country to have access to a network of international economists from diverse backgrounds. Indeed, the world meetings are unique on many counts. First, it is the sole world meeting embracing all fields of economics, including all areas and all approaches, from theory to empirics. Second, because of its broadness, it attracts not only scholars but also distinguished economists from non-academic institutions such as central banks and other public institutions. Thirdly, it attracts economists from a very wide range of countries, permitting a rich exchange of views.

Registration dates:

  • March 15, 2014: Registration deadline for presenters of papers 
  • April 4, 2014: Last day to register at a reduced registration fee
  • June 6, 2014: IEA World Congress begins
