  • IEB Report 2/2021: University Reform

    La reforma de las universidades

    In developed countries, the importance of university systems for their respective societies is far greater than their specific weight. The contribution they make, in terms of training human capital, research and knowledge transfer, is a decisive force for the development of the knowledge society in said countries – and Spain...

    2021/05: Terrorist attacks, Islamophobia and newborns’health

    Grace Armijos Bravo, Judit Vall Castelló

    Islamophobia has increased in recent years which can be partly attributed to terrorist attacks perpetrated by jihadist groups. Islamophobia might be a source of stress, being problematic for pregnant (Muslim) women. We examine how stress generated by the 2017 Catalonia (Spain) attacks affected the health of newborns whose mothers are...

    IEB Report 1/2021: COVID-19, Working from Home and the Future of Cities

    La COVID-19, el teletrabajo y el futuro de las ciudades

    Cities are a human invention that facilitate interaction between people.

    2021/04: What is at stake without high-stakes exams? Students’ evaluation and admission to college at the time of COVID-19

In many countries worldwide, high-stakes exams happening at the end of the school year determine college admissions. This paper investigates the impact of using historical data of school and high-stakes exams results to train a model to...

    2021/03: Sweeping up gangs: the effects of tough-on-crime policies from a network approach

    Magdalena Domínguez

    Worldwide, gang proliferation is fought mostly with tough punishment strategies such as sweeps. In this paper, I study their causal effect on crime for arrested individuals and known peers following a difference-in-differences strategy. I also take advantage of the network structure I retrieved to assess peer effects and identify key...

    2021/02: Reforming the Provision of Cross-Border Medical Care. Evidence from Spain

    Catalina Amuedo-Dorantes, Noelia Rivera-Garrido, Judit Vall Castelló

    Cross-border medical care, defined as care facilitated by a local health provider under pre-established regional agreements as in the case of EU citizens accessing care within EU countries, has been on the rise. Unlike medical tourism, typically sought by patients through their own volition and paid for out-of-pocket, cross-border medical...
