CESifo Workshop on “The Economics of Language Policy”

CAL Language Policy Research Network

Call for papers

*CESifo Workshop on “The Economics of Language Policy” *

Venice, 26-27 July 2013


The intention of the workshop is to bring together economists with
sociolinguists, political scientists and sociologists, as well as
scientists from other disciplines without removing the focus of the
workshop from economics. The aim of the conference is a scientific exchange
on language-policy issues from different methodological perspectives,
furthering the development of the field of economics and language and
strengthening its theoretical and empirical connections to research on
language policy and language planning based in other disciplines. Papers
from economists and researches from other disciplines working on issues of
language policy are solicited. The following is a non-exhaustive list of
possible specific themes of individual contributions:

   - languages and economic efficiency (e.g. languages in the labor market,
   language as a public good, linguistic diversity and trade, languages and
   - language dynamics and network-externality properties
   - language and ethnic and social identity
   - language and economic and social power
   - evaluation of the costs and distributive consequences of alternative
   language policies
   - normative evaluation of official-language policies
   - techniques to evaluate the material and symbolic value of languages
   (e.g. tools adapted from environmental economics)

*Organisers*: Bengt-Arne Wickström and Michele Gazzola,
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

*Keynote speakers *

Victor Ginsburgh, Université Libre de Bruxelles
François Grin, Université de Genève
Stephen May, University of Auckland

The deadline for the submission of the preliminary version of papers is the
*5 April 2013*. Authors of papers that are accepted for presentation at the
workshop will be notified by the end of April. The submission of
preliminary papers is accepted.The final version of accepted papers have,
however, to be available by 28 June 2013 for dissemination to conference
participants and discussants and inclusion into conference materials. A
selection of the conference papers will be published in a Conference Volume

for all participants with accepted papers.
