Call for Papers – URE @ YSI Latin America Regional Convening

Dear Young Scholars,

We are excited to announce our Call for Papers for the YSI Latin America Convening in Buenos Aires, which takes place 19-21 July 2018.

The CfP of the Urban and Regional Economics working group is titled "Neither states nor markets – urban informality and perspectives for Latin American cities". Submissions for presentations on the following and related topics are welcomed:

  • urban informality of labor markets
  • informal housing/land market
  • popular and alternative economies
  • “Uber economy” (new technologies and new informalities in Latin American cities)

If your paper is selected, you will be invited to present and travel stipends are available.
The deadline for submissions is April 27, 2018.

The full CfP and the links to submit your paper (you need to be registered in the Young Scholar Directory) can be found here:

Besides our working group avtivities we will also have a joint debate session with the Sustainability WG and a joint CfP with the Inequality WG and the Financial Stability WG following our joint on-going webinar series "Reconciling financial stability and inclusion across space" (see link above).
Presenting your work at the Convening gives you the opportunity to gain feedback from other young scholars, as well as more senior mentors.

We are looking forward to your submission and seeing you in Buenos Aires!

Jakob, Renan and Igor
