We are writing to invite you to submit a paper proposal or to express your interest in attending the sixth CEPR Economic History Symposium, which will take place in Rome, 22-24 June 2018. The event will be organised by Stephen Broadberry (Nuffield College and CEPR) and Alfredo Gigliobianco (Banca d’Italia).

The symposium aims to bring together leading researchers in the field.

Papers are being sought on topics including, but not necessarily limited to:

  • Macroeconomic and financial history
  • Economic growth in the very long run: demographic and technological factors

One half day will be devoted to a policy session, exploring ways in which economic history can provide lessons for today’s economic challenges.
