XII ELSNIT Annual Conference : Fostering Regional Regulatory Integration

The Euro-Latin Network on Integration and Trade (ELSNIT) is now accepting submissions of papers examining the impact of product market regulation on cross-border trade and investment and regional integration. The aim of the conference is to promote contributions from analysts and practitioners from different academic disciplines (economics, law, political science, business). Papers may focus on economic, institutional, or social dimensions of approaches to identifying and addressing the market-segmenting effects of regulatory policies, and may be empirical or normative.

All researchers who are associated with a European or Latin American/Caribbean based academic or research institution are eligible to submit papers. While detailed abstracts will be accepted, there is a strong preference for nearly completed papers. Submission should be accompanied by a statement declaring the institutional affiliation of the authors. The papers should be written in English.


  • The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2014.
  • The final selection of papers will be made by May 30, 2014 by the network coordinators. More
  • The final versions of the papers must be delivered by September 20, 2014.
  • The selected papers will be presented along invited contributions at the XI Annual ELSNIT Conference that will be hosted by the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, on October 17-18, 2014.


The selected authors’ and invited discussants’ travel expenditures (economy class) and per diems to participate at the conference will be reimbursed by the IDB. Detailed guidelines explaining the logistics of the conference will be provided at a later stage.
