IX Workshop on Economics of Education

Speakers: Stephen Machin (London School of Economics, Centre for Economics Performance), Peter Dolton (University of Sussex & National Institute of Economic and Social Research)

Reception Room, Faculty of Economics and Business, John M. Keynes, 1-11 08034 - Barcelona


The intended aim of this workshop is double: on the one hand, to establish and share the theoretical and methodological knowledge frontier of economics of education. On the other hand, to have access to a diversity of applied studies in which different methodologies are used. Both macro and micro-economic topics are of interest. The Workshop especially welcomes research that applies advanced econometric techniques. Although the Workshop focuses on empirical papers, theoretical studies are also welcome. The accepted papers (10) will be presented in plenary sessions that will complement the two keynote speakers’ presentations.
