2024 Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management Meeting (APPAM)

DCSWEP Sessions at the 2024 APPAM Meeting
November 21-23, 2024
National Harbor, MD

Call for Papers

Deadline to submit: April 8, 2024

The Washington, DC Chapter of CSWEP (DCSWEP) invites abstract submissions for paper presentations at two CSWEP-sponsored sessions at the 2024 APPAM Fall Research Meeting to be held November 21-23, 2024, in National Harbor, MD. This year’s conference theme is “Policymaking at the Federal, State, and Local Levels.”

Abstracts for papers related to policymaking at the federal, state, and local levels in the areas of education policy or immigration and migration are particularly solicited, but abstracts in other areas are also encouraged.

Please email abstracts (1–2 pages, including names of all authors, as well as their affiliations, addresses, email addresses, and paper titles) to Bee Barnett (bbarnett@brookings.edu) by 5:00 PM EST on April 8, 2024. Please indicate which author will present the paper if accepted. In addition to individual paper submissions, complete session proposals may be submitted, but the papers in the session proposal will be considered individually.


DCSWEP’s goal in organizing these sessions is to create opportunities for junior women to present papers at the meetings and to meet with and receive feedback from leading economists in their field. For this reason, we will prioritize submissions where the presenting author is a junior woman. The term junior woman usually refers to anyone identifying as a woman or non-binary who is untenured, or who has received a Ph.D. less than seven years ago; but could also refer to a woman who has not yet presented papers widely. There are no restrictions on the gender or seniority of coauthors. Duplication of paper presentations at multiple APPAM sessions is not permitted. Therefore, authors will be expected to notify DCSWEP immediately and withdraw their abstract if their paper is accepted for a non-DCSWEP session at the 2024 APPAM Meeting. Similarly, authors whose paper is accepted to a 2024 DCSWEP session will be expected to withdraw it from consideration by any other organization at the same meetings.
