This important conference for economic geographers inaugurated in December 2000 in Singapore, and held across the world (Beijing, 2007; Seoul, 2011; Oxford, UK, 2015).

Clark has been active in supporting this conference since its inception through Economic Geography, a top-ranked internationally peer-reviewed journal owned and operated by Clark University, with editors serving on the advisory boards and providing travel support for students from the Global South.

A number of current and former Clark doctoral students also presented at this conference in Cologne (photographed below are Rory Horner ’13, senior lecturer at the University of Manchester, Young-Long Kim ’18, Yifan Cai and Mike Athay). The next conference will take place in Dublin Ireland in 2021.
