4th International Conference in Economics 2014

May 23th, 2014

Oporto, Portugal

Conference Theme: Public policies and sustainable development in the context of the new economy


The Department of Management and Economics at the Universidade Portucalense Infante D. Henrique invites all researchers in Economics, Management and related disciplines, from all around the world, to submit papers for presentation at the 4th International Conference in Economics 2014.

Submitted papers should discuss two aspects around sustainable development:


On one hand we want to discuss the fact that the world is faced with challenges in all three dimensions of sustainable development—economic, social and environmental. More than 1 billion people are still living in extreme poverty and income inequality within and among many countries increased; at the same time, unsustainable consumption and production patterns have resulted in huge economic and social costs and may endanger life on the planet. Achieving sustainable development will require global actions to deliver on the legitimate aspiration towards further economic and social progress, requiring growth and employment, and at the same time strengthening environmental protection.


On other hand it is important to talk about how sustainable development will need to be inclusive and take special care of the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable. Strategies need to be ambitious, action-oriented and collaborative and adaptable to different levels of development. They will need to systemically change consumption and production patterns, and might entail, inter alia, significant price corrections; encourage the preservation of natural endowments; reduce inequality; and strengthen economic governance.


We will have a prize for the best paper in conference. It is not a monetary prize but a certificate that subsist for the rest of the life.

Participants who wish to present their papers must send an abstract to no later than 15th March 2014.

Papers should be in English.

A participation fee of 100 € is required. This fee includes the conference documentation, a lunch and two coffee-breaks.
