Economics of poverty and inequality is studied at the intersection of economic theory, empirical applications and policy implications. Curving inequality and poverty are the result of the complex interaction between economic policies and social norms, including institutions. From this perspective, the study of poverty and inequality has a very broad meaning and, therefore, this course will deal with issues ranging from poverty in health or education to inequality in access to labor and financial markets, and specifically includes the design and evaluation of social development programmes. Each of the topics is gender-sensitive by taking into account the role of sex, age, ethnic or religious group, as well as their intersectionality.
Topic 1. Perspectives in the Economics of Poverty and Inequality
Topic 2. Health
Topic 3. Education
Topic 4. Labour
Topic 5. Corruption
Topic 6. Development Aid and Conditionality
Topic 7. Empowerment and market access programmes.
Topics will include laboratory sessions on the design and evaluation of social development programmes.
