Welcome to the 20th Nordic Conference in Development Economics which will be held in
Helsinki, Finland on June 15-16, 2022. This yearly conference serves as a meeting point for
development economists active in the Nordic countries, but is also targeted more generally to academic researchers in Europe and beyond with a special aim to provide an arena for junior scholars to present their work.
Keynote lectures will be given by Professor Karen Macours from Paris School of Economics and Professor Leonard Wantchekon of Princeton University.
This year, the conference will be jointly hosted by Aalto University, the University of Helsinki, and the Helsinki Graduate School of Economics, and in collaboration with UNU-WIDER and the Labour Institute for Economic Research LABORE.
