The Institute of Public Finance (IPF) and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES), supported by the International Budget Partnership (IBP), Washington and the Croatian Science Foundation (CSF) are organizing Public Sector Economics 2021 Conference – Does fiscal openness pay off? The political and socio-economic effects of transparency, participation and accountability.
The conference will be held on-line using ZOOM platform on 22 October 2021.
Building on the PSE 2018 conference Fiscal Openness: Transparency, Participation and Accountability in Fiscal Policies and the IPF’s CSF-funded projects on local government budget transparency (OLBI) and its impacts (IMPACTBT), the main focus of this year’s PSE conference will be on the political and socio-economic effects of transparency, participation and accountability.
The goal is to bring together leading researchers in the field and to address the current state, trends and challenges in fiscal openness internationally, nationally and subnationally. We invite submissions of theoretical, empirical and policy papers on these and related topics.
Keynote lectures will be given by renowned professors James Alt (Harvard University and the member of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences), María-Dolores Guillamón (University of Murcia, Spain) and Paulo Jorge Reis Mourão, University of Minho, Portugal.
