Respect for the individual dignity of everyone is a core value of the Economic History
Association (EHA). As one manifestation of this respect the EHA seeks to provide a safe
and productive meeting environment that fosters the exchange of ideas, provides equal
opportunity and treatment for all participants and is free of harassment and
discrimination. Free and open discussion and debate are essential elements of scholarly
interaction, but paper presenters, discussants, and other conference participants are
expected to treat others with respect and consideration in both formal conference
events and any other conference-related activities.
