The DAAD partnership on economic development studies, led by German Vi member, HTW Berlin - University of Applied Sciences, and involving nine other network universities, has announced a call for papers in preparation for its fourth project workshop to be held in Campinas, Brazil, September 27-29.

Papers should support the goal of the workhsop, which is to further the debate on financial sector regulation and deregulation that are needed in developing countries and emerging economies to help sustain economic growth and economic development.
 
Abstracts must be submitted by May 10.

The main areas of interest for the papers to be submitted are:

  • Financial liberalization and financial regulation
  • Capital markets and development
  • The relationship between financial markets, financial sector development and real investment
  • Foreign Direct Investment and development
  • The role of state-owned banks in development
  • The role of capital imports for financial sector development and real investment
  • The macroeconomic environment and financial sector development
  • Capital controls and development

Nevertheless, papers on topics not mentioned here but related to the topic of financial sectors in the developing world may also be submitted.

Those interested in delivering a presentation at this workshop should send a short abstract to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We plan to make decisions on approval immediately after.

Papers presented will be published as workshop proceedings or as Berlin Working Papers on Money, Finance, Trade and Development after a review process. Full papers (drafts) should be submitted by September 15.

HTW Berlin can invite and cover travel expenses (air fare, accommodation, meals and excursion expenditures) for 10 speakers from the 11 Southern partner universities in the network. Scholars and policymakers working at institutions that are not members of our network are also invited to submit papers, but will have to cover travel and accommodation expenses with their own funds. For Brazilians scholars, we hope that we will obtain additional funding from Brazilian foundations for travel expenses.
