IX Workshop on Economics of Education

Keynote Speaker: Stephen Machin (London School of Economics, Centre for Economics Performance)

Keynote Speaker: Peter Dolton (University of Sussex & National Institute of Economic and Social Research))

Inicio: septiembre 13, 2018 Final: septiembre 14, 2018

SALA DE RECEPCIONS of the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Barcelona (John M Keynes, 1-11 - 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.
