Call for Papers

In 2001, to show advances in the research that in process within NIP, it invites submission of project proposals focused on the distributive impacts of privatization and deregulation and on social exclusion related to race and ethnicity. Proposed research topics include:

  • What is the main impact of specific deregulation/privatization policies on consumer prices?

  • What is the impact of economic inefficiency?

  • Is it possible to identify the impact on the wage structure?

  • How has the wage structure affected the consumption patters throughout the income distribution?>

  • Can winners and losers be easily identified? If so, is there an efficient and feasible way to compensate the losers?

  • Is there any way to introduce compensating schemes in the design of these policies on an ex-ante basis?

[Research projects will be selected through an open competitive bidding process. The top four qualifying research projects are eligible for monetary support, including stipend, travel and accommodation expenses. Proposals should specify length of the project, participants and outputs. Preference will be given to excellent economic research proposals linking researchers in 2 or more countries.]

In addition, the Network issues a call for papers for general presentation at the 2001 meetings. Papers will be selected through a competitive bidding process.
