  • 2019/08: What are the factors that influence the use of ICT in the classroom by teachers? Evidence from a census survey in Madrid

    Nerea Gómez-Fernández, Mauro Mediavilla

    With the world becoming increasingly digitalized, ICT has a key role to play in the educational process. The aim of this research is to determine the personal characteristics of teachers, as well as those of the school and class environment, that make them more likely to use ICT in their...

    2019/06: Bolstering community ties as a means of reducing crime

    Magdalena Domínguez, Daniel Montolio

    In this paper we study the effects of bolstering community ties on local crime rates. To do so, we take advantage of the quasi-random nature of the implementation of the deployment of a community health policy in the city of Barcelona. The health-care program called Salut als Barris (BSaB; literally,...

    Health Economics: Service Provision in Decentralised Healthcare Systems

    Since the early 1990s, a number of OECD countries have begun decentralising some of their central governments’ responsibilities. Various arguments can be put forward in recommendation of the devolution of certain powers on the grounds of increasing efficiency. For example, it is claimed that local governments are likely to have...

    Zelda Brutti, Daniel Montolio

    In this paper we estimate the impact of a nationwide public preschool expansion that took place in Spain over the 1990s on criminal behavior later in time. We exploit variation in enrollment rates across Spanish regions and birth-cohorts, and we link education data to a unique administrative crime dataset recording...

    2019/01: Bilingual education and school choice: a case study of public secondary schools in the Spanish region of Madrid

    Mauro Mediavilla, María-Jesús Mancebón, José-María Gómez-Sancho, Luis Pires Jiménez

    In the academic year of 2004-2005 the Spanish region of Madrid began to implement a bilingual educational programme in public schools. Currently, 45% of the public educational system (primary and secondary) participates in the bilingual programme of the Community of Madrid (hereinafter MBP). One of the objectives sought by this...

    2018/22: Hit where it hurts – healthcare access and intimate partner violence

    Caoimhe Rice, Judit Vall Castelló

    We exploit a change in the public healthcare entitlement of undocumented migrants in Spain to investigate the causal link between withdrawal of healthcare and changes in help-seeking behaviour of women experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV). We contribute to the new literature modelling domestic violence by taking a novel look at...
