Young Economist Session

During the past thirty years the quality of the Scientific contributions and ensuing debates of the Villa Mondragone International Economic Seminar has consistently been outstanding, owing to the participation of leading experts.

The Conference has provided an important opportunity to meet and discuss the most current topics in economic research. A selection of contributions will be included in the FUET Working Paper series and published by Springer.

A short outline of Villa Mondragone Conference is available by clicking here.

The purpose of the Conference is to focus on a new form of capitalism under the pressure of the global change and to support the environmental and social sustainability of the economic growth, in an area in which the process of globalization is questioned and developed countries have to face many difficult challenges.

The Young Economist Session is open to the contribution of young researchers (applicants currently doing a PhD, Post Doc candidates or researchers having completed a PhD by 2015) regarding any of the following topics:

  • Globalization as driven by fast-paced technological change;
  • The new globalization. Rich and developing nations alike with unprecedented policy challenges;
  • The global change. Toward a new capitalism?
  • The skills polarization and the decline of the employment in manufacture;
  • The impact of globalization in a world with fragmentation of production;
  • The global trading system and the trade wars
  • The internet flow of knowledge and the great convergence
  • Distributing the gains from globalization and sustainable development
  • Globalization. The total and the relative levels of welfare
