Labor Economics Summer School

ALL LABOR ECONOMICS SUMMER COURSES FOR 2021 WILL BE CONDUCTED Online


Labor related issues have been studied in the economics profession from a number of different angles. The Barcelona GSE Labor Economics Summer School covers a wide range of topics in labor economics from a variety of perspectives.

In particular, this summer school offers courses that will cover recent developments within the macro-labor and micro-labor contexts. In each course, both theoretical and empirical aspects will be covered as well as economic policy. These courses should be of interest to graduate students or academics who want to expand their knowledge in the area and to practitioners interested in understanding the fundamentals of these issues. During the courses, faculty are available to discuss research ideas and projects with the program participants.
