PSE Summer School
The Paris School of Economics Summer School offers research-oriented teaching by leading experts in their fields. Since 2016, it has brought together over 420 participants from all over the world, with very high satisfaction.
Entirely run in English, the 2018 PSE Summer School proposed numerous one-week programs from June 18 to June 29. Each program offered a full-time mix of lectures, tutorials and workshops, taught by PSE professors and other invited leading researchers. It will take place in Paris, on the new Campus Jourdan.
The PSE Summer School is aimed at professionals, researchers, as well as graduate students in Economics and Finance (Masters and PhD). Undergraduate students in Economics will be considered if their profile is exceptionally strong.

From June 18 to June 22, 2018
The impact of climate change on the economy and its appropriate regulation have emerged as central themes in public economics. This program aims to teach participants the latest progress in research on the topic and to familiarize them with the relevant methods used to analyze the issues.
- Instructors: Mireille Chiroleu-Assouline, Fanny Henriet, David Martimort, Katrin Millock, Hélène Ollivier, Katheline Schubert and Wolfram Schlenker
This program tackles topics at the frontier of policy-relevant research: recessions and liquidity traps; financial crises; bubbles; heterogeneity and financial frictions; labor markets and unemployment; and international linkages.
- Instructors: Florin Bilbiie, Jean-Olivier Hairault, Jean Imbs, Romain Rancière and Gilles Saint-Paul
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 is a major aspect of globalization and is increasingly at the centre of the public and policy debate. This program aims to analyze topics such as the effects of migration on other dimensions of globalization (trade, FDI, technology diffusion, socio-cultural norms), poverty, inequality, 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.
- Instructors: Hippolyte d’Albis, David McKenzie, Hillel Rapoport, Biagio Speciale and Grégory Verdugo
This programme addresses recent debates at the frontier of the field: globalization, the distributive effects of trade, the role of large firms in the global economy, advances in methods to analyze firm level export data and finally the revival of trade policies.
- Instructors: Maria Bas, Anne-Célia Disdier, Mathieu Parenti and Ariell Reshef
From June 25 to June 29, 2018
Standard economics has been the subject of much criticism. Mainstream economic models and analysis rely on a level of sophistication that is hard to justify from an introspective viewpoint but also considering the large body of experimental evidence. Recent years have witnessed a flurry of alternative approaches. The program proposes reviewing a large body of these approaches, with the goal of stimulating new research, both theoretical and applied.
- Instructors: Olivier Compte, Philippe Jehiel and Jean-Marc Tallon
Institutions and social frictions - associated with inequalities, political conflicts, corruption, and cultural polarization - have emerged as central themes in development economics. Based on both formal theory and rigorous empirical research, this program draws the outlines of the current research frontier.
- Instructors: François Bourguignon, Denis Cogneau, Oliver Vanden Eynde, Thierry Verdier and Ekaterina Zhuravskaya
The objective of this program is to offer a crash course in experimental methods and techniques aimed at understanding economic behavior: how to design, implement and analyze an experiment so to answer a research question. The Professors will discuss the following topics: general methodology (theory, validity, lab and field, replication, and purposes), tools (incentives, risk and time, design and instructions, software, physiological measures, experimetrics,etc.) and applications (case study and participants’ projects).
- Instructors: Béatrice Boulu-Reshef, Nicolas Jacquemet, Olivier L’Haridon, Angelo Secchi and Franck Zenasni
