Applications now open

UNU-WIDER, in collaboration with the Development Policy Research Unit (DPRU) at University of Cape Town (UCT), is excited to announce the launching of a new, two-week intensive summer school on applied labour economics.

The summer school will provide participants with a toolkit in applied economics with special focus on the quantitative analysis of labour markets in developing countries. During the two weeks, participants will take part in lectures given by leading experts from UNU-WIDER’s global network and work intensively in the data lab to strengthen quantitative research skills. 

The course, which will take place in Cape Town during 18-29 November 2019, aims to provide early-career scholars in the Global South with further training on the theories, methods and data issues for conducting high-quality analysis of applied labour economics.
