The Carnegie-Rochester-NYU Conference on Public Policy is now soliciting papers for a conference on “International Policy Coordination and Competition."

The conference will be held at the University of Rochester on April 28-29, 2023. Accepted papers and comments will be published in the January 2024 issue of the Journal of Monetary Economics.

Many recent key policy issues are global in nature. This conference seeks proposals for theoretical, empirical, or quantitative papers that examine the evolving role of policy competition and coordination in the global economy. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  1. Climate change
  2. Financial flows
  3. Trade Policy
  4. Fiscal Policy
  5. Public Health
  6. Global infrastructure investment (supply chain issues)
  7. Monetary Policy
  8. Economic Sanctions
  9. Immigration and Labor market policies

The editors invite detailed abstracts of no more than two pages describing the proposed research paper. If a preliminary version of the paper is available, authors may include it with their abstract. Proposals should be submitted through Conference Maker no later than October 31.

The editors, in collaboration with the Carnegie-Rochester-NYU Advisory Board, will make the final selection of papers to be included in the conference. Authors will be notified by November 30, 2022, if their paper has been selected. The papers should represent original research not published elsewhere. Since the papers are intended for publication, authors will not be able to publish or reprint the work elsewhere without the permission of the editors and publisher. Please note that the editors will contact authors only if their paper is accepted.
