The ongoing crunch in credit systems and apparent collapse in the global economy presents great economic and political challenges for Cameroon. On one hand, the country’s trade, growth and public finances are being badly hit. And, on the other hand, the capacity for the country’s government to engage in countercyclical policies was already limited and heavily dependent on International Finance Institutions (IFIs) and donors. What should Cameroon do?
Also, Cameroon is reputed for being corrupt, is lagging on its promise to achieve Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and has experienced serious food price riots recently. With worsening economic conditions, and the government in a corner, the likelihood of increasing crime, civil unrest and brutal repression present bleak prospects. How should these concerns be addressed in the State Budget?
EITD Research is pleased to invite you and your organisation(s) to reflect on these issues and submit your paper(s) for consideration in its forthcoming State Budget Issues Conference to be held in Yaounde Cameroon, November 3-5, 2009.
We also welcome theoretical and research-based papers broadly related to themes and topics such as:
Money Markets Instability and Economic Development
Public Finances and Fiscal Rules
Poverty Eliminating Economic Growth
Aid, and Debt, Evaluation
Parliament and Budgets
Budgets, Media Presentations and Public Interests
Submission deadline: Please submit abstracts of around 500 words via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15, 2009. Full papers should be submitted for distribution to participants by October 20, 2009. Due to budget constraints, we may not be able to pay for papers. We expect participation to be on the strength of the issues.
