This year the annual IAFFE conference will take place in Mexico City and Taxco, June 19-22. It will be the second time that the conference will take place outside of the United States and we expect that this will be an excellent opportunity for IAFFE to build its connections with Latin American feminist economists as well as with scholars from other regions. The conference will begin with a plenary session in Mexico City on the evening of Thursday, June 19th. All other sessions will take place at the Ex-Hacienda El Chorrillo and Monte Taxco Hotel, Taxco, State of Guerrero.

IAFFE (International Association of Feminist Economics) is a young organization which provides an open forum for dialogue and debate about feminist economics perspectives. It aims at opening new areas of economic inquiry, welcoming diverse voices, encouraging critical exchanges and enriching the field of economic discourse. Its goal is not just to develop more illuminating theories, but to improve the conditions of living for all children, women and men.

TAXCO

The city of Taxco, where the majority of the Conference will take place, is known as ìThe Silver Gateway in the State of Guerreroî. At 1,775 meters above sea level, it is located about 160 kilometers from Mexico City in the northern part of the State of Guerrero. Given its geographic location, it enjoys one of the best climates in the world. Among the colonial cities of Mexico, Taxco is noteworthy for the charm of its picturesque beauty, the unique harmony preserved by the Church of Santa Prisca and its old homes, juxtaposed upon each other, as they rise up along the slopes of the mountain.

TRANSPORTATION TO MEXICO

Continental Airlines is offering special group rates to travel to Mexico from the USA and Europe and optional travel services after the conference. You can contact them and ask for

Z Code ZSVD, Reference Code NPL005.


Transportation within Mexico

There will be charter buses leaving from the Ritz Hotel in downtown Mexico City to Taxco, and from Hotel Monte Taxco to Airport and/or Ritz Hotel. This service will be offered only on Friday early morning and after the conference on Sunday noon and Monday noon.

Alternative Transportation to Taxco

If you have to travel to Taxco on your own, this information will be helpful:
