Ljubljana, 29-30 November 2012

University of Ljubljana, School of Economics and Business, is proud to host the 2nd Annual Conference of the Economic & Business Review (EBR).

For the past decades, the EBR has published high quality theoretical, empirical, applied or policy-oriented research papers on various fields in economics and business.

We cordially invite researchers, irrespective of their institutional or geographical affiliation, to submit theoretical, empirical, applied, or policy-oriented research papers on any field in economics and business to our conference. Special attention this year will be paid to the trade-off between fiscal consolidation and growth promotion efforts in the Euro area and its implications for the countries in the region.

The programme will include plenary session each day devoted to the main issues of the 2nd annual conference and will continue with presentations of selected papers divided into parallel sessions by the field of specialization.
