We are thrilled to announce that the 10th edition of the biennial Workshop on Political Economy will take place in Barcelona on June 1-2 (Thursday and Friday), 2023. The workshop aims at exploring the interactions among political actors, such as voters and elected officials, political institutions, and economic outcomes, broadly defined. We invite researchers working on these or any closely-related topics to submit their manuscripts.


We invite economists and political scientists working in the field to submit a paper. We welcome the submission of theoretical and empirical papers, focusing either on developed or on developing countries. Two plenary sessions will complement the sessions with the accepted papers.
