Welcome to the web site of the 2011 Annual Meeting of the European Public Choice Society, which will be held from April 28th to May 1st, 2011 in Rennes, France. The conference will be hosted by the University of Rennes 1 and the Master Public Economics and Public Finance with the support of the CREM, Center for Research in Economics and Management.
Description and Aim
Public choice is a branch of economics that studies non-market decision making processes and institutions. Given its area of research and the methodology chosen, public choice is often considered to bridge the gap between economics and political science.
About 250 papers are expected to be presented in plenary meetings and parallel sessions dealing with current issues in all fields of Public Choice. Additionally, one young scholar will be chosen to receive the Wicksell Prize for outstanding research in the field of Public Choice.
