Call for Papers on Economic Policy and Research in the UAE and Beyond

Submissions for papers are now being accepted and will be until February 1, 2022.

NYU Abu Dhabi is accepting research papers for the Economic Policy and Research in the UAE and Beyond conference to be hosted on its campus on Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi on March 23, 2022. 

Co-organized by the UAE Ministry of Economy, American University of Sharjah, NYUAD, United Arab Emirates University, and Zayed University, this conference will enable conversations between policy makers and academics. 

The conference aims to bring together scholars working in Economics and Finance from academics, policy institutions, and industry leaders in order to provide an opportunity for presenting novel research results, as well as discussing current challenges and opportunities, with a focus on the UAE economy. 

The organizing committee will accept paper submissions in all areas of Economics and Finance through February 1, 2022. 

Participants are expected to cover their own travel costs. There is, however, a limited budget for those who need financial assistance. The conference organizers will cover lunch, a conference dinner, and upon request, modest accommodation for all participants for up to two nights. This conference is generously sponsored by NYU Abu Dhabi. 

The organizing committee consists of Mouawiya Al Awad (Zayed University), Mohammed Al Suwaidi (United Arab Emirates University), Yaw Nyarko (NYU Abu Dhabi), Mohsen Saad (American University of Sharjah), and the UAE Ministry of Economy.
