Development Economics School

15 November 2010

From the 14-16 December our faculty will organise the Development Economics School and invites PhD students, early career researchers and other interested persons who share a passion for the development challenge.

Development economics is an increasing dynamic field within economics, reflecting the dimension of the challenges of poverty reduction. This event brings together different

perspectives on topics at the frontier of research, by those who are shaping it. Organised around independent sessions, and with plenty of opportunities for personal interaction, we

will look at:

- How important are social networks?

- Can insurance solve the poverty trap problem?

- What happens when labour markets are regulated?

- What are the limitations of sectoral approaches?

- Space: how and why should we care?
