OVERVIEW

The Policy Evaluation programme presents recent developments in the microeconomic analysis of impact evaluation, with two 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. The programme therefore proposes a comprehensive approach of policy analysis.

The first course, Microeconometric Policy Evaluation introduces the main methods currently used for program evaluation, with practical classes to implement the different techniques. Going one step further, the second course, Linking program evaluation to economic theory, presents recent advances in applied microeconomics that fully integrate impact evaluation into economic analysis.

Group works will complement the lectures and practical classes. Participants will work on a policy evaluation project in small groups during four days, and present the results on the last day of the programme. The goal of the group works and presentations is to consolidate and apply the knowledge of the lectures on a concrete research question. Group works also favor the interaction between program participants and the faculty.

The courses are designed for graduate students wishing to gain additional skills in applied microeconometrics for policy evaluation, as well as for researchers and professionals in public and private institutions who work on impact evaluation.

PREREQUISITES

The requirements to follow the course are a good background in Economics or Quantitative Methods, and a working knowledge of English.
