Call for papers | The political economy of environmental policy

The Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) and the Forum for Research on Eastern Europe: Climate and Environment (FREECE) invites paper submissions to a one-day workshop session on the 'Political Economy of Environmental Policy' with a keynote lecture by Michaël Aklin (EPFL, Swiss Federal Institute) on 19th of April 2024 in Stockholm.

This event, hosted by FREECE together with SITE, will bring together leading academics and experts in the field to discuss and explore the complex relationship between politics, economics, and environmental policy.

The 'Political Economy of Environmental Policy' workshop aims to foster a dynamic exchange of ideas and insights among scholars, researchers, and practitioners. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in thought-provoking discussions, share their latest research findings, and explore innovative approaches to addressing the challenges of environmental policy in today's rapidly changing world.

Invited keynote speaker

Keynote address by Michaël Aklin, an Associate Professor from the EPFL, Swiss Federal Institute, and an expert in the political economy of environmental policy.


Just like last year (The Economics of Sustainable Transport)the workshop will consists of two elements: (1) a session with paper presentations, and (2) keynote speeches from invited experts in the field. The workshop will thus provide presentations of the latest research and guidance on the future of the field to economists interested in doing their own research on the topic.
