United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER), together with the EUROMOD team at the Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) at the University of Essex, and the Instituto de Altos Estudios Nacionales (IAEN), are delighted to invite researchers to submit papers for an international conference on income redistribution and the role of tax-benefit systems in Latin America, being held on 5-6 July 2018 at IAEN in Quito, Ecuador.
The keynote will be delivered by Professor Olivier Bargain (University of Bordeaux and Institut Universitaire de France). The conference will also feature a policy round table discussion on ’El rol de los impuestos y las transferencias monetarias en la reducción de la pobreza y desigualdad en Ecuador’, and parallel sessions with contributed papers.
We welcome individual empirical papers studying the role of tax-benefit systems in Latin American countries. Interested applicants wishing to present their original research should complete the online application form. We particularly encourage submissions from early-career, female, and developing country researchers.
