The Institute for Advanced Development Studies (INESAD), the Society of Bolivian Economists (SBE), and Universidad Privada Boliviana (UPB), are jointly organizing the first Bolivian Conference on Development Economics, to be held at UPB’s Achocalla Campus in La Paz, Bolivia, 8-9 October 2009. The conference aims at bringing together local and international scholars for the exchange of ideas and discussion of recent results within theoretical and applied development economics research. We particularly encourage female researchers and young Bolivian researchers to submit papers on all topics within the field of development economics.
