The Research School of Social Sciences at the Australian National University will be holding a conference on June 19-20, 2008, on the topic “New Techniques in Development Economics”. Supported by AusAID, the conference will focus on new methodological approaches to development economics research, particularly field experiments and natural experiments.

We are keen to showcase both cutting-edge methodologies, and the novel application of existing empirical tools to answer new questions. Among the confirmed speakers for the conference are Paul Gertler (UC Berkeley), Dean Karlan (Yale), and Seema Jayachandran (Stanford).


Researchers interested in presenting a paper at the conference should send a one-page abstract, together with full contact information to:
