Call for papers on the economic geography of global finance


We invite submissions of papers to be presented at the Second Global

Conference on Economic Geography, held in Beijing on 25-28 June 2007, at a session entitled Economic Geography of Global Finance.


Papers should have global relevance both in terms of their contribution to theoretical debates in economic geography and their empirical coverage. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, global hierarchy and networks of financial centres, global financial production and value chains, and off-shoring in financial services. We aim at attracting high quality papers from America, Europe, and Asia.


Selection will be made on the basis of abstracts to be submitted by the end of January 2007. However, we will be grateful for expressions of interest as soon as possible. Further enquires and correspondence should be directed to Dariusz Wojcik at
