The HINDI research group, in collaboration with the International Institute of Social History (IISH) organized at Thu-Fri 22-23 March 2018 a workshop on the economic geography of long-run industrialization (approx. 1800 – 2010) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Here, economists, economic historians, and economic geographers discussed the quantitative long-run regional process of industrialization, as well as the empirical and political conclusions one can derive from it. Below, preliminary versions of the papers can be found, which are expected to be bundled in an edited volume. For the people seeking more information, are advised to contact the organizers Bas van Leeuwen and Robin Philips via the contact form.
