Call for Papers: 19th EUROFRAME Conference on Economic Policy Issues in Europe — The Return of Inflation: Challenges for European Economies

Deadline: 20 March 2023 for Draft papers (or extended abstracts).

The EUROFRAME group of research institutes (CASE, CPB, DIW, ESRI, ETLA, IfW, NIESR, OFCE,

PROMETEIA, WIFO) will hold its nineteenth annual Conference on Economic Policy Issues in Europe

in Paris on 9 June 2023. The aim of this conference is to bring together academics, and policy oriented

economists by providing a forum for debate on economic policy issues relevant in the

European context.

The 19th Conference will focus on the macroeconomic policy challenges for European economies of

high inflation. Is the current high inflation a temporary phenomenon or does it represent a change of

regime? Who should bear the impacts of rising energy prices? What are the impacts on the green

transition? Will it lead to new tensions in the labour market? Wage indexation: should it be restored

or abandoned? What economic policies should be employed to tackle inflation and limit its social

consequences? Is monetary policy to blame? How will it affect central banks getting out of QE? And

what will be the effect of the high inflation on public debt?

We seek both empirical and theoretical policy-relevant papers. Areas of interest include but are not

limited to:

  • Macroeconomic impacts of high inflation
  • Social and distributional impacts of high inflation
  • Monetary policy in times of high inflation
  • Impacts of rising energy prices on the green transition
  • Inflation and public debt
  • Tensions in the labour market and wage indexation
  • Impact on financial stability
