[27.08.12] Institutions, Growth and Development - PhD Course
NUPI's Department of International Economics Department offers a PhD course from 27-31 August 2012:
Institutions, Growth and Development
The course provides an introduction and comprehensive overview of theories of economic growth, with a focus on the role of institutions on economic development. The course starts with an introduction of neo-classical theories and models of endogenous growth. It then moves on to discuss institutions as a fundamental cause of economic growth. The course finally analyses the impact of the distribution of income on rates of economic growth, and the effects of the latter on the possibilities for poverty alleviation.
Who can attend?
The course is at the PhD level. Researchers that are not currently enrolled in a PhD programme are also welcome to attend. The course is mainly targeted to researchers working in the fields of economics and political economy, but researchers with a different background – such as political science, development studies, business & management – would be welcome as well.
The registration deadline is 15 August. Please send registrations to firstname.lastname@example.org
