June 15th-16th, 2015
Aix-en-Provence (France)


Launched in 2002, this conference has become the most important yearly conference in public economics in Europe. It aims to promote and diffuse high quality research, with a special emphasis on articles that shed light on ’real world’ policy making. In this sense, this conference is in the spirit of the project developed by the late Louis-André Gérard-Varet. This path is followed by the research community at the Aix-Marseille School of Economics (AMSE) and through valorisation of research and policy analysis at the "Institut d’Economie Publique" (IDEP - French institute for public economics).

The Journées Louis-André Gérard-Varet are open to all fields in applied and theoretical Public Economics and, more generally, to papers in the area of:

- Taxation and Redistributive Systems,
- Welfare Economics, Well-being Measures, Inequality,
- Normative Economics,
- Political Economy,
- Local Public Economics and Geographical Economics,
- Fiscal Federalism, Public Goods, Externalities,
- Auctions and Public Markets,
- Law and Economics,
- Environmental and Health Economics,
- Development Economics and Policies,
- Education and Labor Market Analysis/Policies,
- Macroeconomic Policy and Growth.
