Labor related issues have been studied in the economics profession from a number of different angles. The Barcelona GSE Labor Economics Summer School covers a wide range of topics in labor economics from a variety of perspectives.
In particular, this summer school offers courses that will cover recent developments within the macro-labor and micro-labor contexts. In each course, both theoretical and empirical aspects will be covered as well as economic policy. These courses should be of interest to graduate students or academics who want to expand their knowledge in the area and to practitioners interested in understanding the fundamentals of these issues. During the courses, faculty are available to discuss research ideas and projects with the program participants.
Three courses will be offered in the Labor Economics Summer School 2019:
Week 1 (July 1-5, 2019)
Economics of Education
Instructor: Derek Neal (University of Chicago)
Economics of Migration
Instructor: Joan Llull (MOVE, UAB and Barcelona GSE)
Instructor: Libertad González (UPF and Barcelona GSE)
It is directed by Maia Güell, Professor of Economics at University of Edinburgh.
