Event: V Seminario Académico del Observatorio: "Experiencias de América Latina y Asia en materia de integración regional"
Submission Deadline: June 30, 2020
Description: El V Seminario Académico del Observatorio, titulado Experiencias de América Latina y Asia en materia de integración regional, tiene como principal objetivo generar un debate sobre las estrategias y políticas que los países latinoamericanos deberían seguir en los próximos años para “dar un salto de calidad” en sus relaciones económicas con Asia (Asia Pacífico, sudeste asiático e India), mediante una reflexión y análisis entre las dinámicas de integración entre regiones, en los ámbitos comerciales, financieros, tecnológicos, de inversión y cooperación, entre otros. En este contexto, se invita a académicos de América Latina y Asia a presentar trabajos que reflexionen sobre las temáticas referidas anteriormente. El Seminario Académico es de carácter multidisciplinario, por lo que se dará la bienvenida a contribuciones desde diversos campos (economía, derecho económico, relaciones internacionales, economía política internacional, geografía económica, negocios internacionales, etc.). Se privilegiarán aquellos trabajos que tengan una orientación propositiva. 
Eligibility: Los trabajos pueden tener un ámbito geográfico amplio (región a región) o local (referido a países o agrupaciones específicas). Se alienta a los autores interesados a presentar trabajos relativos a las relaciones de América Latina con la India y la ASEAN, dos actores de gran importancia que han estado subrepresentados en los trabajos presentados en las ediciones previas del Seminario Académico.

Organization: UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the World Bank and the School of Economics at Universidad de los Andes
Event: 2nd Research Conference on Forced Displacement
Submission Deadline: October 31, 2020
Description: In 2019, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the World Bank established the Joint Data Center on Forced Displacement (JDC). In line with its mandate and recognizing the need for robust evidence to inform policy and project design, the Center is partnering with the School of Economics at Universidad de los Andes to organize the Second International Research Conference on Forced Displacement to be held on May 28-29, 2021, at Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. The conference will be preceded by a Policy Forum on Forced Displacement on May 27, 2021. The Center solicits the submission of papers on the collection and analysis of micro data on forcibly displaced populations and their hosts. This second international conference will have a particular – albeit not exclusive – focus on research on internally displaced persons. The choice of the conference venue is therefore not accidental. Colombia has endured over 60 years of protracted conflict and has the highest number of internally displaced persons in the world. Moreover, there is a track record of policies, program design, and academic research related to the humanitarian and development responses to the displacement crisis in Colombia. The Colombian experience can be informative to promote new research and gather attention on emerging scholarship on this important topic from around the world.
Eligibility: To be considered for inclusion on the program, completed papers or extended abstracts should be submitted to by October 31, 2020. The papers chosen for the conference will be selected by a scientific committee comprised of Quy-Toan Do (World Bank), Rema Hanna (Harvard University), Andrés Moya (Universidad de los Andes), and Domenico Tabasso (JDC-UNHCR). Authors chosen to present papers will be notified by January 6, 2021. Economy air travel and accommodation expenses will be covered for one presenter for each paper.
