The Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk (CEAR) at Georgia State University, the Munich Re Foundation and the Microinsurance Network invite academic scholars to present research in the scientific track of the 6th Annual International Microinsurance Conference. This is the second year the International Microinsurance Conference will have a scientific track, and the organizers hope to build on last year’s success. The conference this year will be in Manila. The objective is to bring academic researchers together with practitioners and policymakers to consider the manner in which theory and empirical evidence can inform the debate over the structure and evaluation of microinsurance schemes in developing countries. There is a detailed Call for Papers for the conference.
