Conferences and workshops

Each year, the Becker Friedman Institute hosts thematic conferences and events where leading scholars present and discuss new work and provocative ideas. These events bring together experts from disciplines and subfields of economics that rarely interact so they can explore ideas of mutual interest. The institute also supports standing workshops and special seminar series that explore a specific topic or emerging subspecialty over time. The institute will also showcase the value of economic research by organizing events to share new economic insights with a broader, more general audience.

Your support, which can be designated to a particular thematic conference or workshop series, will nurture vital economic exploration and help bring new ideas to the public sphere for discussion and debate.
