Pacific Conference for Development Economics (PACDEV)
Saturday, March 14, 2009
Sponsored by the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSS) and Health Equity Initiative at San Francisco State University
The 2009 Pacific Conference for Development Economics is presented by the Bay Area Development Association in coordination with faculty from UC Davis, UC Berkeley, Stanford University, University of San Francisco, University of Southern California, UC San Diego, Saint Mary's College, Santa Clara University and San Francisco State University. The goal of the conference is to bring together graduate students, faculty and practitioners to present and discuss various issues facing developing economies today.
This year’s conference will be held on a California State University campus for the first time, at San Francisco State University. The conference is designed to offer attendees a choice of four out of twelve sessions. Each of the conference sessions will consist of presentations of two to four academic research papers in a given area of research. The conference organizers will group papers into coherent themes, and paper presenters are also invited to organize panels on their own for submission to the organizers.
The morning and afternoon sessions are separated by a luncheon with panel discussion entitled “Is current Economics research adequately addressing health disparities in the developing world?”
