MoPED-IGR Workshop

Berlin Meeting on the Political Economy of Development (MoPED) joint with Intergroup Relations Working Group (IGR)


The next Berlin Meeting on the Political Economy of Development (MoPED), organized by the Institutions and Political Inequality unit at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center, will take place on June 1-2, 2023. This year, we are excited to collaborate with the Intergroup Relations working group (IGR, igr.netlify.app). 

The MoPED-IGR workshop offers an excellent opportunity for scholars who focus on intergroup relations and the political economy of development, broadly defined, to build community and foster collaboration. The workshop will consist of in-depth discussions of approximately 8 papers and/or research designs over two days. We welcome works in progress that address governance, corruption, misinformation, conflict and violence, intergroup relations, and migration.

The meeting will be held in person at the WZB in Berlin, Germany. The WZB will cover local expenses for participants, including two hotel nights, meals, and local transport. Additionally, we can cover round-trip travel within Europe to Berlin for invited postdoctoral researchers and PhD students.

We plan to discuss up to 8 papers/research designs. If you would like to present your work for discussion, please send a title and an abstract of no more than 500 words to lisa.garbe [at] wzb.eu () by March 27, 2023. We will make decisions about the agenda within a week of the submission deadline and are available to answer any questions you may have.
