This annual event, which was held for the first time in 2018, is organised by Professors Agustín Casas and Antoni-Italo de Moragas, members the Department of Economics at CUNEF Universidad. The mission of the MAPE Workshop is to encourage cooperation between researchers working in Madrid and disseminate their work both nationally and internationally. Its vision is to consolidate CUNEF Universidad as a European benchmark in Political Economy.

More than 100 researchers from all over the world have participated in the first four editions. The projects presented in CUNEF Universidad have been published in the most prestigious international journals. This year’s keynote speakers are Shanker Satyanath and Garance Genicot, who are professors at New York University and Georgetown University, respectively.

Among the members of the local research network that participate in the workshop every year, there are professors from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, CEMFI, Banco de España, or Universidad Pompeu Fabra, among others. The huge success of the MAPE Workshop, year after year, just goes to show that Political Economy is gaining more and more relevance as a science, and CUNEF Universidad’s leadership in this field is growing with it.
