PSE Summer School on DEVELOPMENT "Inequality, social interactions and institutional dynamics"
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? What do these trends teach us about institutions and development? The course approaches these questions by drawing on formal theory and rigorous empirical research in 2 core modules: “Inequality and development” and “Institutions and Social Frictions”. In addition, 3 shorter modules develop empirical applications of the core course themes. These modules cover the role of historical legacies, conflict, corruption, and media in economic development. The objective of the course is to equip you with the background and tools you need as a researcher to contribute to this dynamic field.
