We are excited to announce that Opportunity Insights is hosting its second annual conference to discuss research broadly related to economic opportunity. The determinants of economic opportunity and intergenerational mobility cut across many areas within economics and our goal is to bring together scholars with different perspectives on these issues. The program for last year’s conference can be found here.
To be considered, please submit a paper or extended abstract here by August 1st. We welcome any submissions related to economic opportunity, with a particular interest in papers related to education, housing, or labor markets. The conference will be held at our offices in Cambridge, MA on November 30th and December 1st. The audience will include faculty affiliates and research associates of Opportunity Insights as well as other members of the Harvard social science community. We will be able to cover travel and accommodation for the presenters of accepted papers. Jamie Fogel, Matthew Staiger, Michael Stepner, and Winnie van Dijk are organizing the conference. For any questions, please contact Matthew at [email protected].
