The Center for European Studies (CefES-DEMS) promotes research on Europe. The Conference gathers scholars from different fields in Economics and Social Sciences, with the objective of contributing to the empirical and theoretical debate on Europe. The Conference provides a forum of discussion for scholars interested in the European economic, social and political situation, in the evaluation and design of institutions and policies in and for Europe, with a particular focus on North-South, East-West and Rural-Urban Divide in Europe.

Conference topics are:

1. Macro, money, banking and finance
2. European governance
3. Wellbeing, inequality and polarization
4. Migration, cooperation and trade
5. Climate change and energy policies
6. The economic, social and political impact of COVID-19

The Network for European Studies is proud to carry on this initiative. The 3rd Conference on European Studies aims to connect scholars working on European issues all over the world and to strengthen their cooperation, particularly in this period of high human, social, economic and political distress.
