Unraveling States? Mergers, Secessions and (De)centralisation
The conference aims to bring together, and provide a platform of discussion for, a small inter-disciplinary group of leading experts on the causes and consequences of the merger/separation of regions and on bargaining/cooperation in interregional negotiations and conflicts. The keynote speaker of this one-day conference will be Robin Boadway (Queen's University, Ontario).
The conference is jointly organized by Benny Geys (Vrije Universiteit Brussel, and Social Science Research Center), Kai A. Konrad (Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance, and Social Science Research Center Berlin) and Ronnie Schöb (Freie Universität Berlin).
