Dansk Public Choice Workshop – program

Programmet til næste fredags danske public choice workshop – den 17. af sin art siden 1999 – er nu sendt ud. Workshoppen roterer traditionelt mellem Aarhus, Odense og København, og afholdes i år hos Cepos, Landgreven 3, 3. sal i København K. Alle interesserede er velkomne til at deltage i hele workshoppen eller evt. blot side med på en enkelt session. Man møder simpelthen op – med den enkelte detalje, at der kun er frokost til dem, der har meldt sig til (hos enten mig eller Henrik Christoffersen).

Hele programmet, der har deltagelse af forskere fra universiterne i København, Aarhus, Lund, Hamborg og Groningen og fra Cepos, kan ses under folden.
