The I.S.E.O Summer School is an international summer course focused on the most topical economic discussion. The 19th edition is entitled “The World After. Challenges ahead for the Global Economy” and will investigate the growing array of challenges – hiding both opportunities and threats – that world’s economies are facing and will face after epochal events such as the pandemic and the geopolitical tensions due to the conflict in Ukraine.
The effects of these factors on growth, global inflation, sustainable development, climate change, inequalities, labour markets, digital technologies & Ai, and even on rise of populism are just some of the topics which will be covered during the intensive one week course.
Conducted entirely in English, lectures at the I.S.E.O. Summer School are all made of a first part of straight talk by the speaker, followed by a second part of Q&A with the participants.
As from the very first edition in 2004, the course will gather a large group (between 60 and 70) graduate and post graduate students in Economics coming from the all over the world.
The 19th edition of the course takes place fully in presence.
Participants are invited to come to Iseo, a picturesque village facing the homonymous lake (Iseo lake) in Northern Italy, not too far from Milan. Both classes and accommodation are going to be hosted at the Iseolago hotel, a charming four star hotel by the lake. Attendees will have the chance to spend some quality time with international participants and speakers – all of them lecturing onsite – as well as to enjoy the place, the food and all the interesting free time activities (kayaking, trips, wine tasting) organized during the week, in an informal, multicultural and stimulating atmosphere which is peculiar to the I.S.E.O. Summer School.
