The Workshop

Date and Location: March 17 and 18, 2022. J.-F.-Kennedy Institute, Berlin


The "1st Berlin Workshop on Empirical Public Economics – Preferences and Public Policy" was a success, being one of the first to be held in person again, after the Covid-19 pandemic. Seven world-renowned speakers were present, as well as a diverse audience of researchers, PhD students, policy advisors and more. In addition, we also had a livestream to allow the international audience to follow the interesting presentations and discussions of the workshop.

The organization of the workshop was a joint effort of the John-F.-Kennedy-Institute at the Freie Universität Berlin, the School of Business & Economics at the  Freie Universität Berlin, the Berlin School of Economics, and INSIGHTS. The head-organziers being Prof. Dr. Max Steinhardt (J.-F.-Kennedy Institute and FU Berlin),  Prof. Natalia Danzer, PhD. (FU Berlin) and Prof. Dr. Luca Stella (J.-F.-Kennedy Institute and FU Berlin). Collaborators were also Prof. Dr. Peter Haan (DIW Berlin) and Prof. Dr. Peter Mohr (FU Berlin).

The two days of the workshop were filled with innovative and currently relevant contributions. The exchange between speakers and PhD candidates also allowed a series of enriching interactions for all.
