Welcome back to Paris in 2013
This will be the third international conference of economists interested in welfare economics and public policy broadly defined. This 3rd conference will follow those organised in Oxford (July 2009) and Paris (July 2011). The 2013 OECD-Universities Joint Conference will be informed by the work done over the past decade by economists, statisticians and social analysts to develop broad measures of well-being, and touch on some of the well-being dimensions included in recent OECD reports on the subject.
The conference will feature roundtables, plenary sessions and contributed research papers on the wide range of issues that matter to the economics of human well-being. It will include three major strands:
- policy and empirical economics
- economic theory
The conference may also include sessions on other relevant social sciences.
Call for Papers
The conference welcomes proposals from all economists interested in supporting the conference theme though particularly in relevant areas of theory and applied econometrics.

The conference is organised by The Open University, the OECD and the University of Oxford. Our conference administration email address is email@example.com.
