Geography, markets, and institutions – including banks, businesses, and political bodies – are crucial determinants of economic growth and development. Central, Eastern, and South-Eastern Europe provide fruitful ground for the investigation of both drivers of and obstacles to prosperity. The WEast network was established in 2011 with a view to connect scholars and researchers who study the economic and social history as well as business history of the region.
The WEast Conference in Berlin offers an opportunity for all economic and business historians to present their research. We invite papers focusing on any historical time period and based on both quantitative and/or qualitative methods. The workshop will be hosted by the Institute for Economic History at Humboldt University. Organizers invite both established researchers and graduate students to submit their proposals.
Local organizer: Nikolaus Wolf (Humboldt University and CEPR)
WEast organizers: Tamás Vonyó (Bocconi University and CEPR), Mikołaj Malinowski (University of Utrecht, University of Oxford, and Humboldt University in Berlin)
