Alliances and Alliance Formation in Conflict

The Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance and the Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB) are jointly organizing an international Conference on “Alliances and Alliance Formation in Conflict”

which will take place from September 1-2, 2011 in Berlin. The aim of the conference is to reach a deeper understanding for when alliances in conflict form, when they might be stable or break up, and what this implies for conflict. The conference will provide a platform for the leading experts on alliances in conflict both in Economics and in Political Science to meet and to exchange ideas and research results about the phenomenon of alliances in contests or in conflict more generally.

Poster Session

During the conference, young researchers – such as PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and Assistant Professors – are given a chance to bring forward and discuss their work with leading scholars in a "poster session". The Organizing Committee is therefore pleased to invite young researchers, who work in the field of alliances, contests and conflict and who are at most 3 years past obtaining a PhD, to submit an extended abstract (at most 500 words) to We invite theoretical work, empirical work or experimental work on the functioning of alliances in conflict and on the reasons and consequences of the formation of alliances. Submission should furthermore include a recent CV and be received at the latest by May 31, 2011. Acceptance notification for the poster session will be provided by June 30, 2011. In case of your acceptance, travel and accommodation will be reimbursed according to the rules of the German Federal Travel regulations.
