The evaluation of public policies is one of the most active and innovative areas of research in the social sciences in general and, specifically, in economics. Educational policies have received significant attention in this process. The intended aim of this workshop is double: on the one hand, to establish and share the theoretical and methodological knowledge frontier of the evaluation of educational policies. On the other hand, to have access to a diversity of applied studies in which different methodologies are used.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together original research papers that cast some light on these issues, especially those from an economic perspective. 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.
