Kai A. Konrad, Director at the MPI for Tax Law and Public Finance, delivered a keynote lecture on the strategic aspects of alliance formation at the 15th Journées Louis-André-Gérard-Varet, an international conference in public economics.

The conference, which took place from 13 to 14 June 2016 in Aix-en-Provence, France, is considered to be one of, if not the, most important annual conferences in public economics in Europe. According to the organisers, it aims to promote and diffuse high-quality research, with a special emphasis on articles that shed light on "real world" public decision-making.

Alongside Kai A. Konrad, keynote speakers at the Journées Louis-André Gérard-Varet included Kaushik Basu, Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of the World Bank, François Bourguignon, Emeritus Professor of Economics at the Paris School of Economics, and Pierre-André Chiappori, Professor of Economics at Columbia University. The latter, after entering the stage as a keynote speaker, performed as a pianist.
