Jun 12, 2017 (Mon) - Jun 14, 2017 (Wed),


 The conference is being organised by the University of Portsmouth in cooperation with e-MFP and the Centre for European Research in Microfinance (CERMi) with an overall theme of “Microfinance and Financial Inclusion”.

150 proposals for papers have been received to date and around 200 participants are expected. The review process has been completed and approximately ninety papers have been accepted to be presented at the forthcoming conference. The authors of these papers come from all continents and are mostly associated with academic institutions, including University of Agder, University of Berkeley, Frankfurt School of Business & Management, University of Geneva, Institute of Fiscal Studies London, University of Illinois, University of Oxford, University of Regensburg, University of Sussex, University of Zurich and many others.

The interest expressed by researchers confirms the role played by the conference as a unique platform to exchange ideas, build networks, give visibility to projects and identify new paths for research. As in previous editions of the conference, there will be a combination of plenary sessions and parallel sessions. Plenary sessions will include panels on strategy, gender, Islamic microfinance, digital financial services as well as future research in the area. Confirmed leading speakers include Kimanthi Mutua, James Copestake, Malcolm Harper, Ariane Szafarz, Joseph Thompson and Tyler Wry.
