The 3rd DEC 2019 on Social Institutions and the Economic Performance of Nations: A 21st Century Perspective
Since the first conference in 2015, DEC has been growing into a leading biennial conference on development economics. After the success of the 2nd DEC, held in Lincoln in 2017, they expect this year’s conference to attract a large number of established scholars as well as early career researchers and PhD students from the UK and overseas universities and institutes. Alongside the extensive conference programme featuring prominent keynote and invited speakers there will also be offered training sessions for PhD students and early career researchers.
The broad theme of DEC 2019 is framed along the lines of the late Douglas North’s seminal contributions of the late last century to address issues arising out of the social and political turbulence affecting the global community in the 21st century. The conference will primarily aim to examine how these issues have been affecting the economic performance of nations at micro and macro levels.
