Every year since 2015 the Society for the Study of Emerging Markets has been holding a session at the ASSA meetings. In 2017, the Society featured a panel on “Finance and Development in Emerging Economies” chaired and organized by Ali M. Kutan.

Stijn Claessens of the Federal Reserve Board, Asli Demirguc-Kunt of the World Bank, Carmen Reinhart of Harvard University and Sergio Schmukler of the World Bank were the invited panelists and over 60 economists participated in the panel. The panelists presented papers on capital flows, debt, business cycles and financial crises in emerging economies, as well as the role of China in the global economy. They also answered questions from participants.

What Our Members Say

Qiang Ji, Chinese Academy of Sciences

We have jointly organized conferences with SSEM on energy finance in China. SSEM was a good partner to work with. They have shared the conference announcements with their growing number of members as well. This increased the number of presenters in the conferences. Professor Kutan presented a workshop on “how to publish in top economics and finance journals”. Young scholars and new Ph.Ds found it very useful. We look forward to working with SSEM again.

Prof. Jerzy Gajdka, University of Lodz

Partnering with SSEM helped us in achieving a great success of our conference with well over 100 participants attending from about 20 countries around the world, who presented high quality papers. The support, advice and friendly attitude of Professor Ali Kutan were of great value and his presentation “How to Publish in Top Journals” created a substantial “value added” for the conference attendees.”
