On August 6th and 7th, 2018, Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research (IGIDR), is organizing a workshop on dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) modeling for emerging markets. The latest-generation DSGE models are the workhorse of modern macroeconomic theory and policy. Dr. Viktoria Hnatkovska (Vancouver School of Economics) will conduct Dynare- and Matlab-based training aimed at practical or ‘how to do’ aspects on DSGE modeling for research students and faculty. Those working in this area can apply. The training will focus on the formulation and estimation of DSGE models with a special emphasis on emerging market economies. The course will be followed by a one-day conference. Papers are invited on all theoretical and empirical aspects of DSGE modeling for the conference.

Since 1998, IGIDR has been hosting the Money and Finance Conference annually given the importance that research on money and finance has gained in India after the reforms. Changes in the monetary regime and institutions, more openness, development of debt and equity markets, initiation of the derivative market, banking sector reforms, and several other measures have constantly raised new questions and policy issues. This, together with closer linkage to international research in a more open economy has rejuvenated research in the areas of monetary and financial economics in India.

As in past conferences papers on important aspects of money and finance, including banking and macroeconomics, corporate finance, stock markets and corporate governance will be presented at the conference.
