LACEA 2020 Annual Meeting

We are very pleased and honored to welcome you to the 25th Annual Meeting of the Latin American and Caribbean Economic Association - LACEA 2020. Given the current circumstances, holding an in person conference is no longer feasible.  We have decided instead that a small virtual conference is the best alternative.  This will take place over two days - Thursday and Friday, November 12-13, 2020 - and be limited to 5 keynote speakers, a panel on Covid-19 in LAC, and a WELAC (Women Economists in LAC) mentoring session to be held around those dates. You can find below the preliminary program. Soon we will share all the details for the registration process.
