German Economic Association Annual Congress
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.
With up to 1,000 participants and more than 400 lectures, the annual meetings of the Verein für Socialpolitik rank among the largest and most respected economic conferences in Europe.
The annual conference consists of two sessions: the "core conference program" (Kerntagung) and the "open meeting" (offene Tagung). In the core conference program, invited speakers give presentations on a given general theme for the conference.
