"Public Policies, Cities and Regions" workshop

December, 14-15, 2017
at GATE Lyon (Ecully)

Topics: Public policies are often closely related to urban and regional issues. Place-based policies such as enterprise zone or industrial cluster policies, but also local public policies, are by nature spatially differentiated. Moreover, many national public policies related to the housing market (e.g. tax incentives for rental investment), land use (e.g. zoning policies) and environment (e.g. protected areas) use delineation rules to target specific types of locations or agents.
The workshop will gather original research papers shedding light on the issues raised by these public policies for urban and regional economies. The workshop welcomes submissions of theoretical and empirical contributions. Accepted papers will be presented over two days and will complement two keynote speakers’ presentations.

Keynote speakers: Nathaniel Baum-Snow (University of Toronto) and Kurt Schmidheiny (University of Basel)

Scientific Committee: Pierre-Philippe Combes (GATE, CNRS), Nelly Exbrayat (GATE, UJM), Laurent Gobillon (Paris School of Economics), Florence Goffette-Nagot (GATE, CNRS), Florian Mayneris (Univ. of Louvain-la-Neuve), Sonia Paty (GATE, Univ. Lyon 2), Frédéric Robert-Nicoud (Univ. of Lausanne), Elisabet Viladecans (Univ. of Barcelona)

Organizing committee: Sylvie Charlot (GATE, Univ. Lyon 2), Pierre-Philippe Combes (GATE, CNRS), Sylvie Démurger (GATE, CNRS), Nelly Exbrayat (GATE, UJM), Florence Goffette-Nagot (GATE, CNRS), Sonia Paty (GATE, Univ. Lyon 2)

Deadline for submissions: September 15, 2017.
