The main conference takes place on 30 January and is hosted by the World Bank (Development Research Group), George Washington University (Elliott School of International Affairs and Institute for International Economic Policy) and the International Growth Center (Cities Research Program), with the Young Urban Economist Workshop occurring on 31 January (visit the Workshop tab for details).
