Kaifeng Pullman Jianye Hotel

July 18th - 19th 2017

We are pleased to announce that the 2017 Symposium of Development and Institutional Economics will be held in Kaifeng, China, July 18-19,  2017, immediately following the 5th Annual International Symposium on Quantitative History to be held in Kaifeng (http://quantitativehistory.com/). The School of Economics of Henan University will sponsor and host both events.

Information about the two previous symposiums of this series can be found at http://econ.henu.edu.cn/Content/317.shtml and http://econ.henu.edu.cn/Content/677.shtml.  

The Symposium will attract both Chinese and overseas scholars to present their latest research on a wide range of topics within the broadly defined areas of development and institutional economics.
 
Keynote speeches of 2017 Symposium will be delivered by:
 
James Kung  (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology)
Long Live Keju! The Persistent Effects of China's Imperial Examination System
 
Gregory Clark (University of California at Davis)
The Big Sort: Selective Migration and the Decline of Northern England, 1900-2017
 
Prospective contributors are invited to submit papers or extended abstracts to henan.symposium [a] gmail.com no later than May 30, 2017. Consideration of acceptance for presentation will be done along the way. Early submissions are preferred since the organizers hope maintain the (small) size of the symposium. The event venue will be at Pullman Hotel Kaifeng, a very delicate resort hotel.
