The Departement of Economics and Resource Management (IØR) at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB) is organizing the next Nordic Conference in Development Economics (NCDE) to be held 18-19 June 2009 on Oscarsborg, an island in the Oslofjord of Norway.
The conference aims at bringing together Nordic and international scholars for exchange of ideas and discussion of recent results within theoretical and applied development economics research. We particularly encourage young researchers based in the Nordic countries (independent of nationality) to submit papers on all topics within the field of development economics. Young researchers from the South are also encouraged to submit papers and participate. If their paper is approved, they may also apply for financial support to cover for travel and accommodation costs.
The Conference is an annual event and this year features keynote speakers Klaus Deininger, a Lead Economist at The World Bank and Michael Carter, professor of agricultural and applied economics at the University of Wisconsin. All participants must cover their own travel and accommodation costs, but the organizers have made arrangements with The Oscarsborg Hotel & Spa
