Association Charles Gide

PresentationSince its foundation in 1983, The Charles Gide Association aims at promoting research and activities in history of economic thought, different methodologies, compared economic theories, epistemology, and economic philosophy.

The Charles Gide Partner session is seeking original, unpublished economics research papers on the broad topics of history of banking, finance and monetary economic thought. Even if all contribution on this topic are welcome, particular attention will be paid on papers dealing with monetary and banking innovations.

Association de Science Régionale De Langue Française

Presentation: Regional migration and residential mobility have strongly increased within modern societies over time. A long series of studies have investigated on the determinants of these migration movements by focusing either on individual attributes such as age, income and human capital or on territorial characteristics such as the conditions in the local labor and housing markets, the presence of urban and environmental amenities or the quality of the local public services. These migration flows strongly impact regional demographics and city growth and appear as a structural determinant of local economic specialization and growth. Local governments aim to attract and encourage the arrival of new households by putting up local actions through the use of fiscal policies and the development of local public services.  Although the session primarily focuses on residential mobility, regional science and growth, all proposals concerning regional science at a large extent are welcomed.

Association Française d’Economie du Droit 

Presentation: L'objectif de l’association Française d’Economie du Droit (AFED) est de promouvoir les travaux, en droit et en économie, qui se situent au croisement des deux disciplines. A cette fin, l’AFED organise depuis plusieurs années des sessions dédiées lors des congrès annuels de l’AFSE, pour promouvoir des travaux d’économistes, mobilisant leurs outils, pour aborder des thèmes variés en lien avec le droit comme par exemple : Droit et Numérique - Délinquance et Prévention – Droit et Gouvernance d'Entreprise – Droit Environnemental – Propriété Intellectuelle et Innovation – Droit et finance – Droit et politiques publiques – Production du droit – Résolution des litiges – Droit, responsabilité, innovation – Justice Prédictive – Accès au droit - Droit Asile – Droit et Economie Comportementale – Droit et Politique de la Concurrence – Théorie des Contrats et Régulation – Histoire et évolution de l’économie du droit… Toutes les propositions, théoriques ou empiriques, portant sur des sujets à l’interface du droit et de l’économie seront examinées avec une attention particulière portée sur les sujets originaux, contribuant au renouvellement thématique ou méthodologique de la discipline.

Association Française d'Histoire Economique (AFHE)

PresentationThe AFHE will organise a panel on “Industrialisation, Economic Development, and Demographic Change” and welcome all papers dealing with the relationship between industrialisation, economic development, and demography in a historical perspective.Since the middle of the 18th century, alongside the development of the Industrial Revolution, major changes in individual behaviour have modified the demographic structure: an increase in the age at marriage, a decline in the fertility rate, a fall in infant mortality and an intensification of migration. These new phenomena, observed at different scales, have transformed local or regional demographic balances and created growing inequalities between geographic areas. In some cases, exogenous factors such as wars, trade treaties and financial or industrial crises, exacerbated or reversed these divergences. More recently, structural changes in Western economies resulted in the deindustrialisation of certain areas, for which the demographic and/or political consequences still require further research.The proposals will focus on the aforementioned themes by using new methodology and/or data, or study classical questions such as:

- How did industrialisation (or the lack of) articulate with the demographic transition?

- What are the demographic consequences of the de-industrialisation (fertility, mortality, changes in the age structure)?

- Economic shocks, demographic changes, and political transformations.

French Association in Spatial Econometrics and Statistics

The aim of this association is to promote and develop scientific exchanges between economists, econometricians, statisticians and mathematicians on spatial econometrics and statistics and  their applications in various fields of research.


Contacts: Nicolas Debarsy ( and Sophie Dabo (

Call for contribution: The growing availability of geo-localized data in the last few decades made it necessary and possible to take into account the spatial dimension in economic studies. It appeared important to consider the question of spatial proximity between geographical units and the potential interactions between them. Spatial econometrics then represents a subfield of econometrics that deals with spatial interactions among these units. Even though a natural vocation of spatial econometrics is to study interactions among economic agents that are geographically close to one another, its tools are also useful to analyze any professional, social or familial links existing among agents. Spatial econometrics thus goes beyond the strictly geographical framework and allows to study the behaviors of economic agents such as individuals, firms or governments as long as they are related to each other through any type of networks. This special session aims to discuss the state-of-the-art and future challenges as well as opportunities for spatial econometrics and statistics. In particular, the last advances in some fields as environment, public policy evaluation or social networks will be presented and discussed. More generally, this session also aims to promote scientific exchanges between economists, econometricians, statisticians and geographers on spatial econometrics and statistics and their applications in several fields.
