2017 BARCELONA WORKSHOP ON REGIONAL AND URBAN ECONOMICS.
The workshop, organised by AQR-UB, will be focused on causal inference in spatial economics. Its aim is to bring together researchers in urban and regional economics that are working in the development of methods that allow estimating causal effects of phenomena in which the spatial component plays a prominent role, as well as empirical exercises in which spatial causal inference is provided. Papers in all areas are welcome, as long as they include a spatial perspective and deal with the issue of causality. Although the Workshop will focus on empirical papers, theoretical studies are also welcome.
