May 4-5, 2017 – Manchester, Great Britain
Manchester Environmental Economics Workshop, 2017: Social preferences and environmental and natural resource economics

The workshop will bring together expertise and insights from recent international work in behavioural environmental economics. The workshop will present state-of-the-art research and discuss whether and how the interplay of social preferences, norms, financial instruments and/or institutions can affect environmental, resource and energy conservation policies. The workshop provides a platform for researchers in environmental and resource economics who use theoretical, lab/field/choice experiments and empirical methods to examine the effect of social preferences on environmental and resource economics. By bringing these research strands together, the workshop provides an opportunity to exchange ideas, produce new research topics, share insights on how to deal with some of the methodological and conceptual challenges in these areas, and to map out a new research agenda.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Prof. Jason Shogren (University of Wyoming)
  • Prof. Timothy Cason (Purdue University)
  • Prof. Daan van Soest (Tilburg University)
  • Prof. Fredrik Carlsson (University of Gothenburg)
  • Prof. Nick Hanley (University of St Andrews)
  • Prof. Timo Goeschl (University of Heidelberg)
  • Prof. Alistair Ulph (University of Manchester)
  • Dr. Katrin Millock (Paris School of Economics)

Paper submission: Abstracts (2-pages) of papers should be sent to Prasenjit Banerjee by 15 March 2017. Early career researchers, including PhD students, are encouraged to submit their work-in-progress papers. Those papers will be considered for short presentation. The decisions about whether papers are accepted for presentation at the workshop will be sent by 03 April 2017. There is no registration fee. However, if you wish to attend please register on the dedicated website.

Organised by: Dr Prasenjit Banerjee (University of Manchester, UK) with the support of Economics Department (University of Manchester), and The Manchester School.

November 16-17, 2017 – Toulouse, France
Workshop Economic Analysis of Environmental Food Policies


The workshop will take place Toulouse School of Economics, Manufacture des Tabacs, 21 Allée de Brienne, 31042 Toulouse cedex, France.

After fossil fuels, agricultural production and fisheries are the two main industries that impact the environment the most. They are significant contributors in terms of climate change but also in terms of eutrophication, land use, water use and toxicity. The environmental impact of food is in large part determined by household diet and consumption habits. Population and economic growth should lead to an even higher environmental impact on the future if patterns of production and consumption are not changed. The objective of the workshop is to discuss recent theoretical and empirical contributions in economics on the analyses of environmentally-friendly public policies at the consumption, distribution, processing and farm level.

Deadline for paper submission: June 18, 2017
Papers should be sent to workshop.pav[at]
A decision will be made by 7 July, 2017.
