Since its inception in 2016, the PSE Summer School has attracted annually hundreds of participants hailing from all over the world (over 70 nationalities). This year all programs are open to both on site and online participants, with special accommodations to ensure the fruitfulness of this hybrid format (see bellow).

Conducted entirely in English, the PSE Summer School offers 8 five-day programs taking place within a single work-week. Each program comprises a full-time mix of lectures, tutorials and workshops, taught by PSE professors and other invited leading scholars, equivalent to 3 ECTS credits, which PSE validates.

On June 21st, Roland Bénabou will deliver a plenary lecture to all Summer School participants.

CLIMATE CHANGE - Impacts, adaptation and political constraints

JPEG - 74.3 ko

The impact of climate change on the economy (for example, agriculture, income, migration, etc.) and appropriate regulation of « the greatest externality the world has ever seen », as the Stern Review puts it, are increasingly at the center of the policy and scientific debate. This program introduces participants to the cutting-edge research on the topic and familiarizes them with the relevant methods of analysis (econometric analysis, dynamic modelling).

DEVELOPMENT - Inequality, social interactions, and institutional dynamics

JPEG - 79.7 ko

Institutions and social frictions (associated with inequalities, political conflicts, corruption, and cultural polarization) have emerged as central themes in development economics. This course takes stock of existing research and moves on to draw the outline of the current research frontier. How do institutions shape the development process ? How do understudied informal institutions, such as identities and customs, interact with formal institutions ? How do we interpret recent trends in inequality within low- and middle-income countries ?

EXPERIMENTAL ECONOMICS - Empirical tools and methods to investigate economic behavior

PNG - 62.6 ko

For long, experiments have been seen as a specific domain within economics (“experimental economics”). The experimental method is now widely considered as a tool among others in the typical economist’s toolbox. Its use has shed light on many areas, on the theoretical side (decision theory, game theory, markets) as on the more applied and descriptive ones (policy, development, labor econ., IO, health econ., etc.). It has led to the blossoming of “behavioral economics”, but its general relevance goes much deeper than that. The purpose of this program is to provide young researchers with the methodological skills required to pursue experiments in their own research.

INDUSTRIAL ORGANIZATION - Applied platform economics

JPEG - 70.3 ko

This program introduces participants to the key concepts at the frontier of applied platform economics. It covers two-sided markets, where two groups interact through an intermediary, or platforms, that captures the value of externalities between the groups. Two-sided markets and networks can be found in many industries, including search engines or communication networks such as the media and the internet. We will focus on these industries, and propose a discussion on important issues that are currently debated in the economic literature and policy circles : Platforms and Data, Media Platforms and Advertising, Social Media Platforms, and Search and Platform Design.

  • From June 27 to July 1st, 2022

INTERNATIONAL TRADE - Firms, policies and distributional outcomes

JPEG - 66.9 ko

This program 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.
The professors will cover many topics, from the quantitative trade models, the links between trade and income distribution, firm productivity gains and wages, to the role of tax and trade policies, but also the political economy of trade policy and the impact of dis‐integration shocks such as Brexit.

MACROECONOMICS - Understanding macroeconomic fluctuations

PNG - 115.5 ko

The macroeconomics sequence in the PSE summer school introduces students to the frontier of research on a variety of topics. We cover both short-term macro analysis in closed and open economies and medium-term issues such as bubbles, unemployment, inequalities and fiscal policies. The aim of the programme is to provide the essential tool box of macroeconomics. Emphasis is put on introducing tools and developing deep understanding.

MICROECONOMETRICS AND POLICY EVALUATION - Modern Estimation Methods and Machine Learning

PNG - 81.2 ko

The Microeconometrics and Policy Evaluation program presents recent developments in the microeconomic analysis of impact evaluation, with courses taught by experts in their fields. 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. This course aims at providing theoretical insights on methods for public policy evaluation, as well as experience in data manipulation and Stata software.

  • From June 27 to July 1st, 2022

MIGRATION ECONOMICS - Development impacts of migration and challenges in global labor markets

PNG - 79.8 ko

Migration is a major aspect of globalization and is increasingly at the center of the public and policy debate. This course aims to present frontier research on the economics of migration and to provide the tools to contribute to this field. How does climate change affect migration ? What is the relationship between migration, other dimensions of globalization, and development ? What are the public finance and demographic effect of immigration for the host countries ? What are the effects of immigration on the labor market ? How do host societies adapt to increasingly diverse population ?
