The Main Theme: Economic Policy for ‛Peace and Sustainability’

Update!: Thank you for your patience. We are now open for participant registration.

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the 19th International Conference of the Japan Economic Policy Association (JEPA) will cancel Hiroshima University of its venue this year, and instead will be hosted as a fully online conference. For this year only, no registration fee is required.

The conference provides the regular sessions and the theme-related plenary sessions. It is intended for academics and scholars working in the fields of Economics as well as policy makers or officials in governments and international institutions. You are welcome to attend the conference.
