The 2013 IAFFE conference theme, “Feminist Economists’ Perspectives on Women’s Education and Work Across the Globe,” is intended to encourage interdisciplinary dialogue on the issues facing women’s access to work and education across the globe. In addition to regular presentations, we invite everyone to organize sessions and present papers using the feminist perspective to analyze the multiple aspects of educational attainment and work opportunities facing women today.

Participation Guidelines:

IAFFE has a Paper Submission Policy that reflects our desire to promote opportunities for wide participation among individuals.  The following guidelines apply to the submission of papers for the IAFFE Annual Conference:

    Participants are limited to two appearances on the annual program (excluding the role of chair)

    Participants are limited to one formal paper and one informal roundtable discussion

    Participants are free to be a co-author on a second paper so long as the co-author is presenting the paper

    None of the limitations would exclude a participant from chairing a session

    Please note that once you have submitted your abstract you will not be able to edit it
