Families in Macroeconomics


Mannheim, Germany

This workshop will bring together micro and macro economists working on the economics of the family. We are interested in topics relevant to developed as well as developing countries. We welcome theoretical, empirical, and quantitative contributions on the subject. We are also interested in field experiments.

Preference will be given to papers that have not been extensively presented already. Submission of extended abstracts is acceptable, as long as the authors anticipate having a draft of the paper available by the time of the workshop.

The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2018. Please send your papers to memarzadeh.nahid(at)
