Interdisciplinary Issues in Development Economics
Lectures and Readings in Micro Development Economics
This course covers interdisciplinary research topics in economic development, such as health, gender, non-cognitive skills, and community.
Each topic consists of two sections. In the first section, we comprehensively review the broad literature in economics and related fields, such as sociology and psychology. The goal of this section is to understand various socio-economic issues in developing countries comprehensively.
In the second section, we focus on a few recent empirical papers and discuss the details, such as their contributions to the literature, econometric methodology, and policy implications. This section aims to learn how to read and write academic papers rigorously.
This course is for a broad range of students who are interested in any careers related to international development, including development practitioners and researchers.
