This seminar is open to the public.

[  Seminar Website  ]

This year-long course (Economics 3390) is offered to graduate students for academic credit. The students and faculty leading the workshop meet weekly to discuss papers on international economics, development, and economic relations between industrialized and less industrialized countries. Faculty participants are drawn from the Department of Economics and Harvard Kennedy School as well as other departments and schools within the University. The workshop invites economists from other universities and research institutions to present their work.

Graduate students in development economics who are on the job market in 2014–2015 may also present their work in progress. The papers presented are available before each talk and are posted on the course website. The workshop is joint with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

For more information, interested Harvard doctoral students may contact Professors Philippe Aghion and Michael Kremer, who are directing the workshop during the 2014–2015 academic year.
