Friedrichshafen | Germany | October 12-14
As meta-analysis is gaining wider acceptance in all
fields of economic and social research as well as public policy evaluation,
in general, important issues of its application, meaning and methodology
naturally arise. By providing a platform for exchange we want to shed
light on the new areas meta-analysis can be used in and enable the participants
to intensify their own endeavors.
Keynote speakers include:
Miguel: the Oxfam Professor of Environmental and Resource Economics in the
Department of Economics at University of California, Berkeley, and director of
the international initiative for greater transparency among the social
sciences—Berkeley Institute for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS).
Stanley: the convener of MAER-Net who has been developing meta-regression
methods for the last 30 years. Tom will
discuss the current ‘state-of-the-art’ of meta-analysis for economics and
business in light of recent developments.
The 2017 MAER-Net Colloquium will introduce the necessary
meta-analytic methods to those participants new to the field, outline
what has been learned about economics and international development
through meta-regression, apply meta-analysis across several disciplines,
and discuss many of the relevant policy and business implications.
The conference will take place from October 12 to 14, 2017, at Zeppelin
University. We expect to host to about 60 researches and scholars from all
over the world, to have interdisciplinary discussions, and to interact with approximately
40 presenters. Students and corporate representatives are cordially
invited. See this flyer for more information and please share it
with your students and colleagues. Also,

Meta-Analysis of Economics Research Network (MAER-Net) is an open international
