Maarten Bosker appointed research affiliate of leading European economists network

04 October 2010

The Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) in London has appointed Maarten Bosker of the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) as Research Affiliate of their International Trade and Regional Economics Programme.

Bosker specializes in economic geography, international economics, conflict studies, and economic history. Central to his research is trying to empirically unravel the importance of geography in urban and economic development. Recent papers focus on the historical evolution of the European urban landscape, and on identifying the possible international consequences of civil war.

CEPR's research is conducted by a network of over 700 researchers. These Fellows and Affiliates develop and obtain funding for research, administer and execute these projects and disseminate the results of the research. The research is carried out under the auspices of seven Programme Areas, that each consist of a number of individual research projects of varying size and description.
