Call for Abstracts
This Conference provides a conducive environment for a comprehensive exchange of ideas and discussion on new theoretical and empirical research papers in environmental economics and policy. Themes includes energy issues, climate change, sustainable tourism, circular economy, bio-economy, water management, and international environmental relations. We welcome both papers based on novel quantitative/econometric techniques and papers applying qualitative research methods. Papers explicitly outlining policy implications are encouraged. Doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers are invited to submit papers. These key-issues are of particular interest of the conference:
- Energy and climate change economic modeling,
- Energy policies and politics,
- Instruments of environmental policy,
- Sustainable tourism,
- International environmental relations, including environmental aspects of international trade,
- Market and non-market valuation of environmental goods and services.

The Scientific Committee will select papers on the basis of 300-500 words abstracts. Authors have to structure their abstract as follows: (1) overview and research goal(s), (2) research methods and data, and (3) preliminary results, policy implications and conclusions.
The conference will publish a book of abstracts and extended abstracts. Peer-reviewed journals World Economy and Policy and Mechanism of Economic Regulation, which sponsors the conference, will welcome the submission of papers.
