The 14th Biannual Conference of EACES will be held at Regensburg, Germany, on 8-10 September 2016, jointly hosted by the Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) and the University of Regensburg. The conference will focus on the topic of

Comparative Economic Development in the Long Run

Keynote addresses will be delivered by Leszek Balcerowicz and Josef C. Brada. Professor Balcerowicz is a former chairman of the National Bank of Poland and Deputy Prime Minister. He masterminded the “Balcerowicz Plan” for the transformation process of Poland in the early 1990s. Josef C. Brada is Professor emeritus of Arizona State University. He researched and published extensively on the development of transformation economies and also worked as a consultant for many international organizations and governments.

We are inviting proposals for papers (up to 250 words) and panels (3-5 papers), reflecting current and ongoing research on any theme of comparative economics. This also includes work that is focused on aspects of long run development using methods from cognate disciplines. Proposals can be uploaded via our conference website at www.eacesconference.eu.

The European Association for Comparative Economic Studies (EACES) was founded in 1990. The principal focus of the association was and remains the comparative study of real economic systems, including the economies of East and West, North and South, as well as the economic interactions among systems and among regional areas, such as the EU. The Association is a broadly based organization in which all schools of economic thought can exchange views and ideas on current and prospective research.
