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, the Harvard Kennedy School, and the Harvard Business 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 present their work in progress during the fall semester. The papers presented are available before each talk and are posted on the course website. Faculty members and graduate students from neighboring universities, as well as those from other institutions, regularly attend the workshop.
