Call for Papers ASHE/NEA Summer Conference 2016

The National Economic Association (NEA) and the American Society of
Hispanic Economists (ASHE) announce and invite paper submissions for our
3rd annual *Freedom and Justice *conference to be held *August 8-10* in
Washington D.C.  The conference is co-sponsored by Howard University, the
AFL-CIO, and the Washington Center for Equitable Growth.  This year’s keynote speaker will be Mark Hugo, Director of Hispanic Research, PEW Research Center.

The conference calls attention to the words of A. Philip Randolph and
Betita Martinez, activists and civil rights leaders who linked racial
justice with economic justice for all.  The conference will provide a forum
for discussion of ongoing racial-ethnic economic disparities and policy
recommendations designed to counter them.

topics:

1.      The effects of unions and union density on African-American and
Latino wages, access to health insurance, and pensions

2.     Income Mobility and Race-Ethnicity

3.     Immigration

4.     Impact of Inequality on Economic Growth

5.     Inequality between Racial-Ethnic Groups

6.    Inequality and African American and Latino educational
attainment.

Papers/Panels which examine inequality for Native and Asian Americans are
also encouraged.

We invite scholars to explore these and other questions at our
interdisciplinary summer conference.
