Several CIRANO researchers present at the American Economic Association's annual conference

Each January, a three-day conference to present papers on general economic topics is organized by the AEA, in collaboration with 64 related discipline associations known as the Allied Social Science Associations (ASSA). More than 13,000 of the world's leading experts in economics are brought together to network and highlight new achievements in economic research.

Several CIRANO researchers were present to animate or participate in panels related to our thematic year: Tackling the challenges of supply chains


Covid-19, Ukraine invasion, or the Suez Canal disruption are just a few examples of events that caused global supply chain disruptions. In this panel, several experts including Julien Martin (UQAM and CIRANO), Lucian Cernat (European Commission and CIRANO), discussed the latest developments in International Trade theory as well as the future potential empirical developments using, for instance, Data Science. They also had a very practical perspective on these global challenges thanks to the presence of International Organizations representatives. Topics such as near-shoring, re-shoring and the future of trade were addressed.


This panel included five presentations, three of them were given by CIRANO researchers: Geographic Diversification of Imports and Economic Vulnerability of Countries - Florian Mayneris (UQAM), The Demand and Supply of Information About Inflation, by Dalibor Stevanovic (UQAM) and Intra-National Home Bias, Trade and Welfare: New Evidence from the Commodity Flows Survey, by Marta Bengoa (CUNY-CCNY)
