GIWeS is organizing a NORFACE WSF (Welfare State Futures) thematic workshop on inequality and welfare states.
The project partners came together for a workshop on Globalization, Institutions and the Welfare State at the UCL Department of Economics, London.
The main focus of the workshop is on how behavioral models, in particular reference dependent preferences, can shed light on economic behavior and the role of public policy.
This minicourse by William Thomson teaches how to write and speak effectively about economics. The course is open to PhD students and faculty members.
The project partners came together for a mini workshop at the European Center for Advanced Research in Economics and Statistics (ECARES) in Brussels on 2 September 2015.
Thomas Piketty’s bestselling "Capital in 21st century’’ has spurred a sometimes highly polarized political debate about increasing economic inequality. In the seminar we take a closer look at the conceptual, theoretical and empirical issues raised by Piketty’s book and explore political and economic implications of different aspects of inequality.
