Twenty-Eighth BREAD Conference


BREAD/CEPR/PODER Conference on Development Economics

26-27 Sep, 2014 London, U.K.

Sponsored by: the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)


The Bureau for Research and Economic Analysis of Development (BREAD) is pleased to announce the  joint BREAD/CEPR/PODER Conference on Development Economics.  The conference will be held in London, U.K. September 26-27, 2014.

You are invited to submit your research for presentation at the conference. The deadline for submissions is midnight EST on 31 July 2014.  Note that due to the joint nature of the conference we are requesting that you submit the paper by email rather than through the BREAD web site. In particular, please email completed papers to  and specify "BREAD/CEPR/PODER Conference on Development Economics" in the subject line.

We are very grateful to Oriana Bandiera, Robin Burgess, Chang-Tai Hsieh, and Gerard Padro i Miquel (LSE) who have graciously agreed to serve on the scientific committee and select the papers for the program. All papers presented at the conference will be selected through this open submissions process. Please note that there will be time for only a very small number of presentations. The conference lasts about a day and a half, there are no parallel sessions, and ample time is allowed for discussion of the research during the presentations. Reasonable travel and hotel expenses will be covered for one author per paper that is presented in the conference.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email
