CLIMATE CHANGE - Impacts, modeling and regulation

  • Instructors: Mireille Chiroleu-Assouline, Fanny Henriet, David Martimort, Katrin Millock, Hélène Ollivier and Katheline Schubert
  • Program supervisor: Fanny Henriet


MACROECONOMICS - Macroeconomics useful for Policy

PNG - 25.9 kb

MICROECONOMETRICS - Policy Evaluation Programme

PNG - 17 kb

The Policy Evaluation programme presents recent developments in the microeconomic analysis of impact evaluation through two courses. Providing a credible estimation of a causal effect has become a standard in economic analysis, both in research papers and policy reports. But it is also equally important to integrate the estimated effects into economic models, in order to improve the design of policies. The Professors here will propose a comprehensive approach of policy analysis.

  • Instructors: Luc Behaghel, Margherita Comola and David Margolis

MIGRATION ECONOMICS - Migration challenges in global labor markets

This program aims to analyze topics such as the effects of migration on other dimensions of globalization (trade, FDI, technology diffusion, socio-cultural norms and so on), capital accumulation, growth, and natives’ labor market outcomes. It also investigates the barriers to immigrants’ assimilation. The program combines the analysis of the main theoretical models in the migration literature with the most recent and rigorous empirical evidence.
