Call for papers 2021 Barcelona Workshop
  • Date: 05/05/2021
    AQR-IREA is pleased to announce the 2021 Barcelona Workshop on Regional and Urban Economics, to be held in Barcelona on October 21st – 22nd, 2021 under a hybrid format.

    The workshop will be focused on the analysis of the determinants and impacts of internal migrations and cross-border commuting with a special focus on potential developments after the COVID-19 era. Empirical contributions will be preferred although we would like to include also some methodological papers.
