About the Event

The Lisbon Meeting on Economics and Political Science aims at bringing together young and experienced scholars who share methodologies and research topics in these two fields. It is a joint organization of the Nova School of Business and Economics (Nova SBE-UNL), the Institute of Social Sciences (ICS-UL) and the Lisbon School of Economics and Management (ISEG-UL).

The 5th Edition will take place, in person, in Lisbon, on September 19th-20th, at ISEG-UL. It features three keynote public addresses by Benny Geys, from Norwegian Business School, Ignacio Lago and Maria Petrova, both from Universitat Pompeu Fabra.
