ERSA Congress: call for papers

The 60th ERSA Congress this year will be held in Bolzano (Bozen) August 25-28, 2020. March 2nd, 2020 is the deadline to submit an abstract.

Elena Ragazzi invite you to submit a paper to the special session S22 Counterfactual methods for regional policy evaluation that Marco, Lisa and Elena organised in this context.

Special Session Proposal (pdf)

Following the very good achievement of previous conferences, we decided to organize again a session devoted to counterfactual impact evaluation, which shares the same empirical and inductive approach of our network. In fact, theoretical approaches to CIE can be highly enriched by discussion and by feedbacks from empirical research. We invite researchers who have already experimented counterfactual approaches to regional policy evaluation to discuss their experience, enhancing the debate upon counterfactual impact evaluation.

The main aim of this session is to discuss various methodological aspects and their implications, particularly concerning: strategies and methodologies for comparison group selection, corrections for selection bias, alternative estimates and validation, computational topics related to data sources and data management suited for evaluation problems, etc. Theoretical, econometrical, and applied papers are welcome.

Since the session aims at assessing methodological approaches rather than reviewing empirical results, we invite authors to address the following points:
–  Motivation of methodological choices and related advantages
–  Shortcomings in practical applications and possible solutions
– Methodological lessons from results

For further details, you may contact Marco Mariani marco.mariani@irpet.it , Elena Ragazzi elena.ragazzi@ircres.cnr.it or Lisa Sella lisa.sella@ircres.cnr.it

To submit a paper, please consult the call for papers of the conference and then access the submission portal. It will be kind of you to communicate also to us your intention to present a paper.

Submission of an abstract (200-400 words) and of an extended abstract (1,200-2,000 words) or of a full (draft) paper are required for the March deadline. If your proposal is accepted, the registration for the congress and the upload of a full (draft) paper will be required within June 15th, 2020.

Consult also the special session list, to look for other interesting chances of presenting your work.
