The Society of Bolivian Economists (SEBOL) is organizing a mid-year meeting to promote the interaction of members of SEBOL with international scholars. We are aiming to build a network of collaborators to foster novel ideas and break new ground in development studies.

The meeting will be a one-day workshop to showcase 6 to 8 research papers. Each paper will be first presented by its author, then discussed by an invited scholar, and last discussed in plenary session. All presentations will be delivered in English.
