4th IZA@DC Young Scholar Program
December 2023Nairobi, Kenya
This course addresses the question of why fundamentally equal humans living in different countries enjoy very different standards of living. The aim of this course is to make the very latest research in economics on these issues accessible to anyone who is sufficiently curious about it. It is modeled after the award-winning undergraduate development course at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and, like its model, it is entirely based on research articles.
The main aim of the program is to bring outstanding PhD students to Washington, DC in order to meet with leading labor economists during seminars as well as personal meetings at local universities and public institutions such as the World Bank or the Inter-American Development Bank.
The program is designed for advanced PhD students from outside the US working in the field of labor economics who have either a job or research related interest in local universities or public institutions in the DC area. The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 10 students.
