Annual Conference 2024

11/09 => 13/09

SITES-GLO Annual Conference | 11-13 September 2024 | Naples, Italy

The IX Annual Conference of SITES is organized jointly with the GLO Annual Conference in collaboration with the CRISEI Institute based at the Department of Business and Economics of the University of Naples Parthenope. It will be held at the University Parthenope, Naples (Italy) on 11-12-13 September 2024.


Social Inclusion, Migration, and Global Inequalities

Economic development is more often coupled and curbed by social exclusion and inequalities.

Within countries and regions, barriers from legal systems and labor market regulations or discriminatory and stigmatizing attitudes, beliefs, or perceptions prevent some groups from fully participating in political, economic, and social life.

Across countries and regions, the rising trend in global migration is frequently accompanied by the increasing vulnerability of migrants with respect to citizenship, language ability, relevant skill sets, social networks, and acceptance by the natives.

The conference aims to provide a forum for development and labor economists to identify the roots of social exclusion and discrimination and to discuss policies to sustain inclusive growth and reduce global inequalities.

The international SITES–GLO Conference 2024 invites the submission of papers, long abstracts for research papers, or complete sessions of three to four papers related to the topics of the conference and the general themes of development and labor economics.

Conference Topics 

The conference welcomes both empirical and theoretical contributions on general issues concerning:

  • Economic development and social inclusion
  • Migration and social inclusion
  • Social identity and social inclusion
  • Historical economics and economic development
  • Culture and Institutions
  • Preferences, beliefs, and religions
  • Women, discrimination, and gender gaps
  • Demography and fertility choices
  • Poverty and inequality
