VIII Workshop on Economics of Education

Inicio: septiembre 07, 2017 Final: septiembre 08, 2017

Sala de Recepcions - Facultat d'Economia i Empresa. 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.
