Summer school – The economics of poverty and inequality: global challenges in the 21st century

Call for application
Summer school on the economics of poverty and inequality: global challenges in the 21st century
July 1-5 2024, University of Barcelona

This course will introduce participants to selected topics in research on poverty or inequality, which are essential for any attempt to meet this challenge, including questions of measurement, analysis, conceptual integration, available data and their limitation as well as the policy context of poverty measures.

This course has been primarily designed for master and PhD students. A background in statistics and econometrics is expected and prior knowledge in public economics or development economics is an advantage. While some lines of research involve formal reasoning, economic intuition is emphasised throughout the course. Lab sessions require basic Stata skills. Students are expected to bring their own notebooks, but a Stata license will be provided for the duration of the course. Finally, working language of the course will be English.

Application deadline for general registration without scholarship is May 30 or until places have been filled out.
