2007 Conference Program


The 2007 Pacific Conference for Development Economics is presented by the Bay Area Development Association in coordination with faculty from UC Davis, UC Berkeley, Stanford University, University of San Francisco, University of Southern California, UC San Diego, Saint Mary's College and Santa Clara University. The goal of the conference is to bring together graduate students, faculty and practitioners to present and discuss various issues facing developing economies today.  

The conference is designed to offer attendees a choice of four out of twelve sessions.  Each of the conference sessions will consist of presentations of  two to four academic research papers in a given area of research.  The conference organizers will group papers into coherent themes, and paper presenters are also invited to organize panels on their own for submission to the organizers.

The morning and afternoon sessions are separated by a luncheon with panel discussion. The luncheon speakers for 2007 will be Edward Miguel (UC Berkeley) and Michael Carter (University of Wisconsin), discussing "Identification and the Identity of Development Economics: Non-random Thoughts on the Use of Randomized Experiments."
