The 2014 IAFFE conference theme, “Women’s Economic Empowerment and the New Global Development Agenda,” is intended to encourage interdisciplinary dialogue on how feminist economics contributes to discussions about the new global development agenda. Panel proposals and individual paper submissions are invited on any aspect of feminist inquiry into socio-economic issues. We particularly welcome participants to organize sessions and present papers from a feminist perspective to analyze the multiple aspects of women’s economic empowerment, including education, asset ownership, networks, and employment, as well as the economic and social policy aspects of the post MDG and post Rio plus 20 sustainable development agenda

Submissions: Proposals must be submitted on-line via the IAFFE website. Submissions can be made for panels or individual papers. Participants are limited to one formal paper presentation and one panel discussion or roundtable. Additional co-authored papers are allowed so long as they are presented by the co-author. Please see IAFFE website for detailed submission guidelines, as well as the limits for individual participation in panels and paper presentations.

Deadline for Submission: The deadline for paper submissions has passed.

Conference Site: The conference will be held at the University of Ghana in Legon, Ghana. *Legon is 13 kilometers Northeast of Accra.*
