The  Cornell Institute for China Economic Research (CICER) brings together scholars from Cornell and elsewhere to conduct cutting-edge economic research and understand the most important socio-economic issues in China and their global impact. The Emerging Markets Institute (EMI) provides thought leadership on the role of emerging markets - and emerging market multinationals - in the global economy.

This workshop that is co-hosted by CICER and EMI will feature research presentations and panel discussion with prominent scholars on critical issues in emerging markets. It serves as a platform for researchers, faculty and PhD students who are interested in sharing knowledge, presenting their research and ideas, and getting feedback from their peers. There will also be a keynote speech by Xiaobo Zhang (Professor at Beijing University and Senior Research Fellow at IFPRI) during the workshop. (Note: video streaming capability is available for remote participants.)
