Call for Papers

Preliminary Call for Papers & Participation

The Economic Society of Singapore (ESS) cordially invites all practitioners, policymakers, and academicians to participate in the 38th Conference of the Federation of ASEAN Economic Associations (FAEA) to be held in Singapore from 27th-29th November 2013.



Theme: The ASEAN Community: Integrating Sustainable Urban and Rural Development

Creating a prosperous and peaceful ASEAN community is increasingly dependent upon achieving sustainable economic development. Importantly, from a sustainability standpoint the ASEAN countries, both the highly urbanized and more agricultural, are increasingly interdependent, relying on each other for key input and food resources, being vulnerable to environmental decline or disasters in surrounding areas, and remaining inextricably tied to shared political, economic and security dynamics. And within this framework, a conference like this asks important questions about how robust and stable our economies and societies are likely to be in the face of shocks (internal or external), global environmental impact challenges, natural and man-made disasters, and other important socio-political influences.

The Organizing Committee of the 38th Conference of the FAEA, with the support of all the FAEA members, invites papers on all theoretical, empirical and policy topics related to the main conference themes of Sustainable Urban and Rural Development, including (but not limited to) the following sub-topics.
