Dates: January 3-7, 2017
Description: Fourth Winter School on the Analytics and Policy Design of Migration
Location: Campus of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, Doha, Qatar
Subject: The purpose of the Winter School is to induce the participants to think rigorously, creatively, and in non-conventional ways on various approaches to the modeling of migration choices and consequences, and to demonstrate to the participants how such a thinking process could enrich the spectrum of informed migration policies. Participants will be exposed to the art of economic modeling in general, and to the workings of applied microeconomic theory in particular. The School will be led by Oded Stark, Distinguished Research Scholar at Georgetown University, Professor at the Universities of Bonn, Tuebingen, and Warsaw.
Notes: School participants should be holders of Ph.D. in Economics earned during 2012-2016, or Economics Ph.D. students in advanced stages of their dissertation work.
