Sommersemester - Seminar on Development Economics and Economic History (E561B)

Due to the Corona crisis,
the course is held completely digital.

Hinweis:

Der Kurs wird in englischer Sprache angeboten. Die Kursinformationen werden daher nur auf englisch angezeigt.

Inhalt

In this seminar, students can obtain deep insight into our research on empirical development economics and economic history. They will receive some explanation about research design from the advisor, read exciting new literature and perform parts of the data analysis themselves. Visits in archives might be part of the internship, but this will not always be possible. Topics included are, for example, the effects of development aid, brain drain, and general development trends (human capital, welfare) in poor countries over the long run. The topics are chosen based on the research that is ongoing in our group at the time of the internship. At the end of the internship, the students write a term paper that reports their research activities, the documents and the stata do-files they worked with.
