18th Doctoral Meetings in International Trade and International Finance

The RIEF network organizes a yearly doctoral meeting which offers the opportunity for a limited number of PhD candidates or young PhDs to present their papers to active senior researchers in the field. Previous meetings took place in prestigious Universities such as Lille, the European University Institute in Florence, Zürich, Paris 1, Bocconi, Nice, Kiel, Aix-Marseille or Barcelona.

This year, the RIEF is pleased to welcome Nicolas Coeurdacier (Department of Economics - Sciences Po and CEPR) and Carsten Eckel (University of Munich, CESifo and CEPR) as keynote speakers.

PhDs candidates and young PhDs (still on the job market) should submit their papers (exclusively in English) in electronic format (pdf) to:


by March 20, 2018 at the latest. Papers are refereed and selected by RIEF board members (complete list can be found here: http://sites.google.com/site/riefnetwork). Decisions will be notified by early May 2018. A prize of 500 euros will be awarded to the best paper presented. To be eligible, authors and co-authors should be Phd students at the time of papers’ submission.

Thanks to our sponsors, there will be no submission and participation fees. Participants will have to cover hotel and travel expenses – no travel award will be granted. Besides, the journal International Economics (http://www.journals.elsevier.com/international-economics/) will consider submissions of papers presented in the meeting, using a fast editorial process.
