Doctoral Workshop 2018

The 2018 Winter Doctoral Workshop will be organized on December 19th 2018 at the University of Namur.

The Workshop is intended for PhD students in economics and related fields at any stage of their thesis to acquire experience in presenting their work to a broader audience and discussing it.

The Doctoral Workshop takes place twice a year, in December and June. All doctoral candidates of the organizing universities are required to present each year, at either of the two sessions. Both theoretical and empirical contributions at any stage of completion are welcome. Students from other universities are warmly invited to participate and present their research, but in the event that not enough slots are available, priority will be given to students of the organizing universities.

This year, Prof. Rajiv Sethi from Columbia University has kindly accepted to give a keynote during the workhop entitled "The Geography of Lethal Force".

The Workshop will be followed by a social dinner.


The Workshop will take place on the 4th floor of the Faculty of Economics. The address is:

Rempart de la Vierge, 8,

5000 Namur


The organizing committee greatly appreciates attendance by the faculty and post-doc researchers, as their feedback greatly enhances the quality of the discussions and comments. They are kindly asked to express their interest and confirm their presence by sending an email to the organizing committee or by filling out the form in the registration website.
